I'm planning to do this now at 85% to fit on ender3 pro.

I have managed to slice in Cura and remove bottom layers so can fill with plaster OK!

Next, I've managed to turn on Spiralise mode for the headdress, however, I'm concerned about how the printer is going to manage the overhang of the top section, if it's hollow :~Z

Is there anything I need to do to prepare for that? I can see I'm printing it having the bottom of the headdress model on the bottom, and vase mode all the way to the top.

Excellent result. Used plaster only in the bottom section for weight and stability.
I gave it several coats of primer and filler and only sanded down the skin sections. I painted it as per the original with acrylic paints. I think I will also give it a coat of lacquer just for protection.

Printed on:
RepRap Prusa i3 - self-sourced/built
I had to cut the model into 11 pieces so it fitted my standard Prusa i3 (200 X 200 Y 220 Z build space), printed with a 0.4 mm nozzle. After printing the parts I filled them with plaster and glued them together with epoxy. Then I sanded down the joint and gave it a coat of Zinc primer and sanded down the model very lightly to preserve the 3d printer artifacts. Finally I gave the model 3 coats of golden spray paint.

Hello! I want to print this Nefertiti sculpture bronzeFill. Do you have a file STL solid model? I do not want to do a large size. I have the desire to make "bronze" and accurately process.
