Flower in Vase
This is a lotus or rose or what ever is most Awesome. I made this as a gift for someone so I went the extra mile and made some brass leafs colored green and Copper wire stems so oxidize them in a brown green tone. I went to TIG the copper to the stainless stalk but It was too small so I just brazed it. I ended up Threading the stem to use a 4/40 nylon acorn nut below the flower and a 4/40 acorn nut at the top to look real.
I had to print 5 attempts in order to get 2 good ones. I printed them with 1.7mm filament and set at 0.0070 extruded width. Envelope temp had to be at 70c in order to get the thinnest most delicate flower I could.
