Simple twisted vase design, I made this real quick to try out the vase profile on my ultimaker.

Printed this using Faberdashery Crystal Clear PLA on my Reprappro Huxley after slicing with Slic3r V0.84. 70% scale, zero infill and four perimeters. The first 15mm of the print were a disaster but I let it run. After it had got going and the layers had enough below them to form properly, the print turned out very well - stopped it at around 87mm for two reasons - I was reaching the limit of my machine height and I suspect it was going to try and fill in the top pretty soon after. I need to find some way of disguising the bottom - and plugging up the gaps - before I can use it as a vase.
How does one select a vase profile in replicator g? I just printed one of these and the inside was honeycombed. I did have 10% infill, so I am trying it now with 0 infill. I also was printing my second print using aquanet to assist in holding it to the plarform. Came off about 3 cm up the build. =( the quality of the part that printed is the best I have seen yet though. :)
