Thanks! The red one is way better looking. PLA seems to produce finer layers once you've got it dialed in. I printed my PLA version with head 185C and heated bed 50C, and with fan cooling enabled after the first layer. I presented it to my wife on her breakfast tray in bed this morning. She loved it! Thanks for designing this thing!! :)

Very nice! The red one looks better. Some blobbing om the white there. Even though the red one is you first PLA print it look better than ABS (on the picture that is :-))

What differences in temperature did you use?

Instructions

1) Download the file

2) Slice it. I would really recommend a Comb-featured slicer like Skeinforge or the new, still to come Netfabb.

3) Choose a nice color. Red or black will probably be the safest choice.

4) Enjoy!

UPDATE:
I added some verions of the shape for you convenience.
The "small" versions has a footprint of approx. 135x150mm and is available in a high resolution and low resolution STL
The "small TOM" version has a footprint of 88x98mm to fit a Thing-O-Matic

Printed a white one in ABS and then a red one in PLA. This was my first attempt at using PLA and after a lot of futzing around with temp settings and adding a fan to my Printrbot it finally came out looking pretty neat. 8-)

I had to open the stl in meshlab, convert it to an obj file type and open it in hexagon to edit it. Had to make it WAY smaller. It ended up being around 300kb in the end and printed up nicely. :)
