Megalodon 3D Printed Tooth Fossil

I have been printing some more Megalodon shark tooth fossils based off the scanned model found here:

These images show my latest variation where I printed the layers are 0.1 mm so the tooth consists of over 900 layers. I also added a base made with OpenSCAD as well raft printing to make the base more stable. I tried to slow the printing down so the bottom of the tooth is less stringy. It turned out better but still far from perfect. The print took about 6 hours.
