For example, one user 3D printed this Dragon skull at 0.1mm layer height. It took 94 hours of printing for the Skull and 25 hours for the horns. It all worth the time.

Materials

Folger Tech FT-5 R2 Large Scale 3D Printer Kit prints with ABS, PLA and other materials. 
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
