I hope someone can help me a bit, first time trying to print out anything and I'm not too sure about what plastic to pick.
The descriptions on the website are great but I still found myself scratching my head.

The object in question is at the bottom of the post

The print size I had in mind is around 30 cm or 12 inches tall (or less if the best suited material doesn't allow for that size) which would hopefully make the finer details less of a problem. If some fidelity is lost, well that's life, I can live with that, but I imagine it might still be tricky (?) without the right choice of material and finishing.

I'm currently working on a base, thickening some of the cloth and closing gabs and some of the negative spaces inside the cloth to hopefully make it all less problematic.

Any help and advice would be welcome.
