Ever wanted a vase that looked like a tornado? Or a tornado that's also a vase?
Well, luck smiled upon you, finally you can print one! :)

I modelled it in Maya, it's designed to be easily printable, with no external support, even with 0% fill.

Go on, print one!
All comments/criticism/improvements/ideas welcome! :)


You can print this as hollow, but you will need a couple of solid layers so that the bottom of the vase is closed.

  • Perimeters: 2
  • Solid Layers: 10
  • Fill density: 0

If you want to put water in it, try spraying the inside with varnish to seal it completely. You don't want a leaky tornado... :)
