Thin (.5mm) wall vase by kcmelty Nov 8, 2012

Description

I wanted to see how thin of a wall I could print. So I designed this vase with .5mm walls and it printed great.

It looks great with some small led lights inside of it.

2/2/13 Added vase_solid.stl

Solid was added.

Any chance you could make a solid version of this? It is much easier to slice and tweak when the model is solid instead :)

If you would have used Cura for slicing, you would have found the simple setting 'Vase' which would slice a vase-like object from a solid shape (no infill, single wall, bottom, no top, spiral to the top). a little more effort would allow you to tweak to your hearts delight.
But perhaps makerbots, like up! etc. don't understand gcode?

Instructions

Don't scale these down because if the walls are any thinner I don't think they will print. I included 3 sizes to choose from.

I printed using Sailfish fine settings with:
.15 layer height
20% infill (for the base)
120mm/s feed
180mm/s travel
