Thank you Kacie Hultgren, of Pretty Small Things, for your good Udemy class and tip yesterday to try Netfabb Cloud to smooth out this chakra buddha figure. It looks better and prints far more easily.
Kacie’s class is worth taking; it’s a good overview of principles, full of tool recommendations and examples, and has a great dialogue with Kacie and other makers. https://www.udemy.com/design-for-3d-printing/
Below are images from printing on my Makerbot (the chakra buddha and infinite love) and a larger sandstone chakra buddha printed at Shapeways https://www.shapeways.com/shops/designrosetta
