I liked the "LED Christmas Tree" very much, but wanted to print it with just one or two shells.
It has the same shape as http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1406
,but it is solid on the inside


Print it, put i light in (or under) it, enjoy it.

Like this very much - thanks!

What's the draw? Add, please file for editing.

Sorry, I just have the STL.
I took the STL file from thing 1406 and modified it a bit. (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1406)http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
Just open the STL in your favourite 3D-CAD software and modify further.

Did you print this with a fan? What is you setup?

Yes, I use a fan.
Printrbot+ with this fanmount:
Printed with repetierHost, sliced with Slic3r: 0.2mm, 185C/55C, zero infill, 2 outer shells, zero top and bottom layer.

I still do not get this shell technique I keep hearing about.  What is it and do you have a link I can read up on it?  You mentioned solid so what is the infill or is that what shell is?

It is how to print an object hollow.

If you set Slic3r to zero infill, 2 perimeters, zero top and bottomlayers (horzontal), it only prints 2 outher shells and nothing within.

 Ahhh, so the top and the bottom are actually connected but the rest are not?  Sort of like printing it twice with one inside the other?

If it were a solid zylinder:
Zero infill would print it hollow.
Zero infill and no top and bottom layer would print it as a pipe.
