Summary

Simple spherical christmas tree ornament.
Choose size, number of "ribbons" and choose to have one helix or two running in different directions.

Instructions

Should print without support and the small flat base should be sufficient to get good adhesion to the bed.

At least with PLA it is best to print two or more at once so that, especially for the top ring, there is more time for the PLA to cool down.

The thing pushes overhangs quite far to the limit, but with low temperatures (I had 190°C) it should work.

I printed with 1 shell and 25% infill, but there almost is nothing solid.

i cant customize it

i tried this on the maker bot2 3d printer and it did not look as good as that sadly.

Dear kowomike,
I would like to modify your design, but I havent been able to make it looks as good as yours. Could you please let me know which program you use to make the model and the commands used_I'm trying rhino. I ll let you know the my final product. thanks

Can't you smooth the ribbon? It would look so much better!

+1. If you could find a way to make them smoother, it would look amazing!

Theoretically yes, a bit. But increasing the slices for OpenSCAD linear extrusion easily leads to non-simple objects that are unprintable.
