Hi, just made one on ultimaker2 with the settings of DscheyH posted earlier. I must admit it leaks water when filled. What would be best settings for watertightness? This one will be used with fake flowers, or as is, it is a beatiful design!
I've got it shrunk to 50% and it looks like my slic3r default setting for small perimeters has kicked in and slowed my print speed to 30 mm/s. Has anyone printed this faster and how did it go? I know my printer could crank it out faster but I'm willing to slow it down to get a good result.

2) Generate gcode
The 3D STL is a closed file. I used Skeinforge to slice my prints (third one printing now). The 3D model is quiet tall @200mm and may not fit your 3D printer. Rescale or chop the top part to fit your printer.
Here's what I did generating gcode:
- 3 bottom layers
- No fill (obviously)
- 1 extra shell (making 2 shells on wall)
- Layer height 0,3 (to save print time)
- Remove the top 3 layers by hand (after gcode was generated)
3) Choose a color.
I personally like the semi-transparent materials for these objects.
4) Print the vase. It takes 2:30 up to 3:00 hours on my standard Ultimaker with SF settings as described above. The result is a pretty strong and good-looking vase!
