Hey i printed it out but it didn't work

This type of model is better printed on powder-type printers or polyjet printers (washable or meltable supports), or on FDM with dual extrusion and soluble supports (PVA for PLA and HIPS for ABS). On a single extrusion FDM or on SLA type printers it's kind of too tricky to print. My tip would be to scale up the model and print it bigger, so that the gaps between individual parts is bigger, but then if you print it flat the bottom side will look awful.
Try the expandable crown/bracelet if you want :) it can be printed standing up

Would it be normal for it to come out in a different shape than it's supposed to
