That's a beautiful print! It could make a nice bracelet :-)

The UP's amazing, I bet you could print that at half scale without much problems.
Even this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:14363 worked ^_^

I could barely watch the video seeing the gloveless hands! I really did almost take a thumb tip off with a wood chisel while removing support material. My fault completely, early morning, just a small part, not much to remove, so no need for gloves, and a quick slip and it was over. After a month, feeling started to return, but in the cold snow now it aches a little bit. Picked up a set of cut resistant gloves and I won't even pick up my tweezers without putting them on! For all new users, be careful, even some edges of the raft ABS pieces can be extremely sharp and can do damage. Take your time and wear the gloves and eye protection! I bet there have been more serious incidents than what we have heard of. Sorry to get off on a tangent there.

I do have to say the model was fantastic!

True. I only had few minor accidents but finally ordered safety gear.
It's rather inexpensive, too;

Glove Search

Safety glasses

Perhaps PP3DP should add glasses to the set? :-)

When I did one, I did it at 0.3mm resolution (I use this for most prints), normal speed, and it took about 4 hours to print.

The one I printed had no broken teeth at all. But, obviously, I was fairly careful in removing the support material. I do have the fan mounting mod, that blows air onto the print area, installed on my machine, whcih does meake the support material enormously easier to get off.
Will post pictures of mine when I get home tonight.
Cheers
Olaf
