The large print was about 6x6 inches (see the thing file). I should have made the stl file smaller.
looks like cornstarch on a speaker
What size did you print the large one out at? I imported the file and it was over 400x400x270mm big, lol. I had to scale it down to around 20% percent. What print settings did you use as far as infill and vertical and horizontal shells? I'll give this a shot later this evening. Just looks cool, nice work!

Instructions

Created in a 3D modelling program (Modo).

This will test the ability of your printer to do arches. This needs no supports or rafts and indeed supports would be a bad idea. On my Replicator 2 printer there are rough spots on the bottom of a few of the arches but no problems printing. The quality of the print is not quite what I would have expected - perhaps it is my filament choice or the model itself, not sure - see the photo of the print.

I have included the file in thing format for Makerware users.

The photos are of the largest size possible with Rep 2.

I used 10 percent infill and 3-4 shells with success.

I have now included version 2 with the hopes of getting a cleaner print but to be honest I think version 1 might look better in the end - your choice - you can have a more pointier (V2) or rounder look (V1).
