Good to know but I will tell you I see them even on low rez printings and they are extremely bad the higher you get.

Yeah, I hate the STL format and wish we could print using another format or even better print using Nurbs directly.

If by facets you mean the polygonated sides instead of a smooth rounded sides, that is an artifact of the intermediate format for printing (STL) which is just a list of triangles.

You can increase the '$fn' variable on line 7 which will tell OpenSCAD use more facets. Rendering will be slightly slower, your files will be bigger, and only on high-resolution printers will you notice a difference.

Would be cool if you could make a scad version without all of those facets and put it up because I never could figure out scad very well.

Instructions

1) measure your small pot

2) update the scad file with your measurements

3) render and print the resulting file. Printing it upside down works nicely. The mess left by the support material is hidden once you put a pot on it.
