Silver Dragon
Gwain96 @mz4250 My issue wasn't that I didn't know what a face was— I've been working with SolidWorks, Rhinoceros, and a few other programs for awhile now. I just thought by 'go to faces' you meant switching view modes / select modes / opening up a sidebar labeled 'faces.' I did find a tutorial on Blender though, and it seems to be working. In edit mode, pressing L allows you to select only the contiguous parts around your cursor, which is what I needed. I was able to properly export the Silver Dragon's head as a separate STL, and I can repeat this for the other parts. Thanks again for helping, Miguel.
Gwain96 @mz4250 Thanks for helping out, Miguel. I feel completely inept for even having to ask, but I can't figure out what you mean when you say "go to faces."
Gwain96 There's no way to print this file as-is, like the Coatl STL. I've tried to split the file into multiple pieces so I can print each individual part by itself and attach them together afterward, but I can't split them in Netfabb, SolidWorks, TinkerCAD, or Blender. That said, several people have apparently been able to print the Dragons. How? I'm completely at a loss here.

Gwain96 This one is oriented really weirdly. Barely any of this would touch the print bed, it would all be on top of flimsy supports. Is there a better way to print this thing?
