I tried printing this its not easy alot of over hand early picks up the rest of the print. Any way u think i should print it

go for it... I dont know what u mean by "alot of over hand early picks up the rest of the print." but you should attempt it.. I have a higher res version if this one sucks.. let me know I'll upload it.. Also post some pics if you did make one.. I would love to see it...

My guess is he means a lot of over hangs. If I had to guess I would say rotate the skull so that it prints with the top of the skull on the bed. That should reduce the need for a lot of the support.

yea ur gonna def have to rotate.. as per my directions..

sorry yes i meant over hang. i tried printing it facing to the right on its neck but it comes out bad printing it different would need alot of support and i dont want to cut all that crap off

With due respect to the awesome model you created. The instructions are a tad on the vague side :). Resize and Rotate don't really give a whole lot on insight. What is your personal experience of the best position on this print?

I would print it like the rendered pic I made with the black image.. normal straight up and down.. so its sitting on the jaw and the neck... this way once it gets to a certain point it wont have to print support pieces and you get to see the model better while its printing.... I would just assume by now you noobs would have figured this shit out on ur own but I guess I'm gonna have to school you guys,.. :) just messing with ya buddy happy printing..!!!
