3D printing settings

See Assembly.skp (requires free version of Sketchup 8) to assemble.

I printed the first 1.0mm of "Giraffe Face.stl" in yellow using sailfish stop at z position, then switched to black for the remainder of the print.

Uses 5 pennies (US) in the bellcrank bucket as counterweight.
