Snowflake Light holder by MakeALot Dec 19, 2012

Description

I haven't seen any snowflake designs on Thingiverse, so I thought I'd upload one.

Will do. It exported eventually, let it run overnight. Got to scale it down, just over the bounds of my machine.

I don't use Slic3r, maybe try a different layer height?

Slic3r says it has about 20 errors... and takes about an hour to process. Any tips?

Instructions

Print, insert tea-light/light, see the snowflake silhouettes.

Obviously, only the LED tea-lights should be placed in a plastic holder, you have been warned...

I've also uploaded a smaller version that works as a tea-light holder or napkin ring.

BTW, if you are using Makerware and want to print a single border (a la Stretchlet) find the Makerware program folder, mine is in
C:/Program Files (x86)/MakerBot
and edit the fill.csv and jitter.csv files in
conveyor/src/main/skeinforge/Replicator slicing defaults/profiles/extrusion/ABS
setting
Activate Fill False
and
Activate Jitter False
respectively. Then print one of the solid models using the high setting but change the layer height to something quicker (i.e. 2.4) and everything should work. Don't forget to re-edit the fill and jitter files for your next normal print!

Could you post some the the Make setting such as temp, layers, infill, etc?

0.1mm=0.3mm layer height, 2 shells 0% fill. Temp depends on filament.

I like this a lot, especially when printed with gold filament. It's my current Thing of the Week on 3DGeni.us - thanks for the great design!
