This is a simple vase with 3 helixes of cubes wrapped around it. The cubes vary in size according to ABS(sin(theta)) where theta is the angle of the centre of the cube in the XY plane from the X axis.


Looks good with a flickering LED inside. The cubes give interesting shadows.

I printed it in Pearly White PLA from Faberdashery.

Print with no fill and no top to get a vase.

I have included my Cura settings.
