Infill:

15%

Notes:
This can be printed with a single color/process (and then later painted, if desired), but I sliced it as a multi-process job (as I never tried it before), so will offer here my (S3D) settings if you wanted to go down that road.

Position:
X Offset: 37.21 mm
Y Offset: 71.00 mm
Z Offset: 8.00 mm

Scaling:
Scale: 100%

Process1: hex nut cap (and a small part of "mane" from the head)

Advanced tab / Layer Modifications / Stop printing at height: 8.80
Process2: dragon head

Supports are needed (sparsely) under the cap, but not from the outside.

Orientational time and costs:
Build time: 0 hours 23 minutes

How I Designed This
measured and drew the hex nut cap in F360
added a circular background (as a head motif would look better on it than on hex)
extruded the head from a simplified logo version I captured from the device boot screen (see original Thing / Remixed From for details)
