The original project you can find in Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1116392

This is a diary about printing this project and a thing what I learn about 3d printing and models so expect a lot of pics and explanation.

Day 1

Printed 2 legs out of the 8 that it has. As you can see it prints the bones in two-part and you have to glue them together which will create a line that will be visible if someone would look at it closely. I found a video about this problem link it here. Lesson learned here because the painting should have come after applying the wood filling and sanding it down. I used a primer from Army Painter the skeleton color one. It looks like a scary little haunted house. Forums said to leave it drying for around 15-30 minutes depending on ventilation, I left it for an hour outside.
