Chief Guh
SpyderHelix Thank you sir! I'm slowly getting things together to do prints for the Adventurer's league STK adventure arcs :) Fine timing!

Dragonborn Paladin
SpyderHelix Thanks for the fix! I got hold of the version of cura you suggested, installed it and it looks much better than the new one. Tweaked it so it fit my machine (Qidi X ONE) and started the print for this model - after 2 layers it began dragging the nozzle through the printed material..there wasn't any more z movement. I'll keep working on it, but I guess there's something I'm not getting. Printing now with S3D. I'll have to figure something out for mesh fixes so I don't keep bothering you to do them, I have meshmixer installed but the most I've done with that is fumble around for 20 minutes on a model and then close it lol
SpyderHelix No worries, I guess it's all about learning new things lol I'll keep at cura and see what I can do, it just doesn't seem to flow as smoothly as S3D and is clunky..off to find and reload a copy that might work!
SpyderHelix The open ankle
SpyderHelix I notice that the right leg near the ankle has open geometry - when I load it into Simplify3d it leaves it open as a seperate piece, and I have no clue how to use cura (I tried over 2 months and couldn't get the print settings right for my printer, nor print anything correctly) is there another bit of software I can use to close the open meshes so I can print the models in one piece?

Myconid Version 3
SpyderHelix Thanks for the info so quickly! I guess it's high time I figured out what all the settings are in S3D so I can more accurately guess on how to print these. Many thanks!
SpyderHelix How do you print this figure? I've tried on it's back, face, and standing up and I just can't get a good print out of it.. (100% infill, .1 resolution, 20mm/s) Awesome looking myconid though, can't wait to fill my mini box with a bunch lol

Flail Snail
SpyderHelix @Weyland I've also been using .1 layer height, speed is 50 mm on mine (I'm new however, so listen to the pros :) ) supports, raft, and I used 100% infill just to make it a bit more solid.
SpyderHelix Thanks :) I'm off to do more of your models - between those and an indiegogo I backed with dungeon tiles, I'm going to be a busy boy lol
SpyderHelix Got this far with it using the PLA that came with my machine..almost looks like it should have some white in there for a creamsicle effect lol I've switched to silver/grey so hopefully the prints will come out looking better :)
SpyderHelix Love this!! I was just reading about these in the guide last night, so glad I checked in today - just got my 3d printer on Tuesday and I'm going to be a printing fool for the next few weeks lol Thank you SO much for the time and effort put into these files!

 Beholder (updated)
SpyderHelix I should probably add that I am using meshmixer to separate the meshes, and then using Simplify3d to print them. Simplify is the one that's angry with me apparently - looking at the mesh in Mixer, the base of the stalk is closed.
SpyderHelix I'm horrible at Blender, so I downloaded Meshmixer to try and separate the beholder to print it..when I separate one of the eyestalks to print it, it wont put support structure under the base of the stalk because it's an open mesh - are you familiar with meshmixer to point to direction of a solution or should I keep on tryin?
