hello, where is the head

Does anyone have and pictures of this put together ?

do you just align and glue it ?

Awesome model thanks for sharing! Just wanted to know though, did you ever make a center foot?

Whoops - Have added in! Cheers

Loaded the model in Lightwave 2015.1 and the mesh is pretty well done, as of the details I am going to do some refinements to it.
Loaded it up in Simplify3D and the layer preview has some issues, and I am going to do some modifications. and maybe make it more printer friendly, I am thinking of increasing the size a little bit. And refine the details.. and maybe increase the amount of pieces to print, for better details.

That's great if you'd like to improve the model - Let me know when you do and I'll post a link to the better version in my description.

Im haveing some issues with the body alot of errors happening. Legs printed great though.

Is the detail too fine or do you think it's an issue with the model itself? I'll try to fix it if so.

Im not sure i get about around 50 messages using pronterface saying unable to close this loop having (1-19) points. Each message has a njmber ranging from 1 as the lowest and 19 as the highest. Tried using 3 different slicing programs auto fix features to no avail.

Ok, I've re-uploaded a repaired model and fixed the small holes - See body(repaired).stl. Let me know how that goes!

I still cant figure it out even with repaired model. useing sli3er it makes it flat with no detail. Using the auto correct in meshmixer and netfab basic it causes the model to miss complete sections. even tried cura but print wont start.

Steph you are thee best, My friends dad is an R2D2 fan and he will love this pen holder. Keep up the great work.
