3D Printed Alicorn Statue from LoE

Description

This is a 3D printed version of a model from the game Legends of Equestria (legendsofequestria.com).

To make it work with 3D printers, I made the following modifications:
- Closed all surfaces with holes in them
- Removed all internal caves and unnecessary gaps
- Extended floating details to touch the body with no gaps
- Removed some tiny/floating details that can't be printed
- Removed some of the cracks because they were risky to print
- Reshaped manes, hooves, tails, wings and clothes to have steeper overhangs
- Ensured neighboring objects have overlap where possible
- Made bridges perfectly horizontal where possible
- Moved parts around to make space for supports
- Split wings, horns and some of the hooves to separate printable objects
- Extended capes to touch the ground
- Made the distinct parts touch together early in the printing process. An exception is one of the 4 capes, so I gave it an additional stability structure.
- Removed details on feathers and made them thicker
- Custom build adhesion and support structures

I'm not going to paint this because I quite like what it looks like in pure white!
