This is a remix of a dragon head (created by falken76) into a model rocket nose cone. Kudos to the designer of the dragon head! It’s a terrific model. I added an adapter “straightened” the model a little using MeshMixer. To 3D print this file, enlarge the print by 198.5 percent to fit a standard BT-60 tube. I would orient the model vertically using lots and lots of supports. I used generic PLA filament, 0.2 mm layer height, and 20 percent infill. For post processing, I would use a filler/primer to get rid of the layer lines and do lots of sanding.

TIPS: This nose cone has A LOT of drag, so you will need to design your rocket accordingly. If you need to add more weight to the nosecone, you can try printing it with increased infill and you can probably epoxy some lead shots under the crossbeams. Designing and flying a rocket with this nose cone will require prior design and rocketry experience. Please don’t do stupid stuff that screws it up for the rest of us.

LEGAL STUFF: I take no responsibility for any damage or injury caused by this rocket part. User assumes all responsibility for making a safe and flyable model rocket. Please follow ALL NAR safety guidelines.
