IMPORTANT PLEASE READ BEFORE PRINTING
This print is ready to go and does not need any more fixing to be printed!
UPDATED! New version of the print ready model has just been posted. This version improves reliability and ease of removing included supports. The old version had some issues, especially around wing tips that made it difficult to not take a piece of the wing with the supports.

Note: I have been having some printer troubles so a lot of the nasty looking parts of the print are result of my printer and not the model.
This print already has all the support material ready to go, DO NOT add SUPPORT MATERIAL.
the support material that i already added to the file has tapered ends and easily breaks off, however be very careful removing, especially around the head and hair.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND USING A CUTTING DEVICE like a dremel, or rotary tool to cut the supports on this model. unlike my other models, this needs beefy supports for the overhangs, but the model itself is very delicate. Do not print this is if you are not willing to take the time to carefully remove the supports, and reprint if necessary.
Print with AT LEAST 30% infill and be careful removing supports, there are many fragile features.
DO NOT PRINT WITH A RAFT OR SUPPORT MATERIAL
Do not freak out of the supports fail mid print, they are mostly redundant and designed to recover.
A brim does help with bed adhesion though
there are TWO stl files included, PRINT THE 3DPrintReady FILE. I included files of the print without supports if you want to add your own supports. note a base is necessary or the model will tip over.
print this at .1mm layer height for optimal results.
i did a bunch of smoothing in Meshmixer, so the stl file is quite big even after being 'reduced' so be patient!
30% this is critical that you make it at least 30 percent
I printed this on a monoprice maker select plus (a rebrand of the wanhao, identical printer)
if you want to speed up print time, keep the outer layer slow, so it looks good, but increase the infill print speed.
IMPORTANT: you MUST have AT LEAST a .8mm shell thickness or the supports will fuse with the model! (need the model to be strong enough that when the supports are removed they dont take some of the model with them)
A brim does help with bed adhesion.
For scale, the model is ~96 mm tall
a dremel and a pliers and a flush cut to remove any stringing and the break-away supports. be careful removing supports, the model has many detailed and thin features. especially with the hair and umbrella
cut the supports away for much better results.
if you do not have a dremel, when cutting the supports with a flush cutter or similar tool, try to cut vertically. these tools have wedge shaped blades and force layers apart wrecking the model if cutting horizontally. cutting vertically or almost so is the way to go
consider donating please, it really helps me stay motivated to keep spending the time to make these amidst my university studies, and the time to take pictures and post these :) thanks
