Summary

So in the Christmas spirit of turning everything into a Koch Snowflake, the wifey wanted something to put the little Christmas candies in, and I wanted to play with OpenScad. Here's the compromise - a twisted scaled Koch Snowflake!

Instructions

Print in your favorite colors - I'm using this one to clean up the bits and pieces of filament I have lying around. Use the normal slicing tricks to make it a vase - I used .4mm layers and 3 loops since she who must be pleased needed one "right NOW!".

I've not got any flickering LED's lying around, but I think it would make an entertaining LED lamp as well!

The candy dish is about 100mm x 50mm, and should scale if required.

The STL has no "void" in the middle. It is solid!!

Correct - cuts way down on the processing time in OpenSCAD, and gives you much more flexability on the wall & base thickness.

In your slicer, simply tell it to do no infill - that will make it hollow - and then tell it how many top and bottom layers you want.  In my case, I did 3 bottom layers, no top layers, and used 3 perimeter loops.

OOOK

I had not thought about that. In fact it's quite better.

Thanks

This is great! Can you please also upload the SCAD files? Thanks!

 Hey Sphynx - absolutely, give me a day or so to clean it up - it should be able to extrude, twist, and scale any 2D object, just needs a bit more polish before I toss it out in the wild!

Any update on when you'll have the SCAD files available?
