i can't find the ring part

Um... try clicking on the link in the description. "I wanted an easy way give people the bird so putting a peg hole in this skull was simplest way. It's compatible with the Stubby Delicate Ring Thing http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:19154"

Delicate Stubby Ring-A-Thing Sized

Perfect, thank you.

I know its a long shot, but would you have this model in Solidworks format or a .step file? cheers Mike

Sadly no. The original guy who did the model might though.

The guy I "remixed" it from. You should be able to see it on the "Thing Info" tab on the right column.

I printed one of these and discovered that there is some problems with the mesh. The XYZPrint software for my printer was able to slice it but created some distortions, especially in the eye socket. Slic3r 1.1.7 was not able to slice it at all, most of the skull is just missing. :(
My attempts to Heal the model made no difference.
What program did you use the slice yours?

I opened up the original in TinkerCAD and any attempt I made to modify or resave the model also resulted in a damage mesh. So I am guessing it is a bit too much info for TinkerCAD to handle?
What program did you use to mod yours?

I used Tinkercad to mod it. I sliced mine with skeinforge 50 and printed with ReplicatorG.

I have been having a problem with tinkercad and complex models. I used it to change the orientation of a different complex file and I had the same problem. So it seems to be a tinkercad / Slic3r thing. I will have to poke at it and see if I can figure out what is going wrong in Slic3r.
I just used Netfabb to automatically repair and then export to a new, optimized file. (I am still learning how to do it) and managed to get a file that Slic3r could handle without error. I am not sure what changes netfabb makes when it repairs or optimizes a file. I will try to run Netfabb on the front, back and pins at the same time and hope that everything still lines up when printed.
If I am able to get a working print I will put up the files in case anyone else's printer / software has the same issues.
