3D printing settings

All files are in STL to print without any support and already in the best orientation to print.
Most parts can be printed with your standard 0.2mm layer config. In the pictures, they were printed using 3 walls and the new lightning infill for almost everything.
For the clear parts you can use the great tips on How To Print Glass
The tentacles must be printed in vase/spiral mode, to avoid the seam line, they have a custom easy-to-remove brim.
