Your earring design is beautiful, and I'd love to print them, but I don't have an easy way to rotate the STL file so that it will be in the right orientation to print.
Is there any chance that you'd also post the STL files with the earrings in the right orientation? :-)
yeah, the file is WAY too small and sideways to print on a standard 3d printer.
They always failed for me in a horizontal configuration, but printed just fine in a vertical position with a brim support on the ultimaker. Put them in the same orientation they would be on someone's ear. I even did these as a 3D print demonstration on a wobbly table at an anime con...

They look awesome. Do you have any advice on the settings used to print it? I've had no success so far, always failingafter a while when the 6 branches are distinguished. I tried to print it vertically like on the video, and i guess the fact that needs to print 6 little sections makes it tricky. Very low speed?
Thanks! When I printed them I used a makerbot rep 2 and had it set to two shells and 10% infill and 'medium' precision of 0.2mm layers with no support or raft. That is a bummer that the branches fail after a bit, you could try using support under them. Slower speed is also a good idea! I've never messed with it but that would probably increase accuracy. I also set my temperature 5 degrees Celcius above average just to be sure it flows smoothly. Hope this helps.
