Great idea but a couple of problems. First, the STL doesn't match the picture shown above (it's just some merged boxes) and secondly, the orientation is wrong (I did this two before, Front is actually top view and visa versa in the CAD program). The latter is easy to fix since most of the 3d printing software gives the ability to reorient objects before printing.

I'm not sure what's up with the boxes but the figure is inside them - just remove the outer boxes. This might also benefit from a trip to netfabb or some such. There are a number of duplicate faces in here..

Duplicate faces. I certainly hope. 8 meg for flat boxes and a stick figure seems a little much. Methinks a swipe with a mesh simplifier might also be in order.

The curves are really high resolution, too - those ripples on the entrance/exit portal really add up!
