I was undecided whether to print this with or without supports. Printed this weekend without. The top of the piece came out ok, but the bottom is a complete mess. No amount of clipping hangs can make it look ok. Too many " filament hairs in between the cells" like bashmuttons says. It just ruins the honeycomb pattern. I should have tried supports they never failed for me before.

If any1 want's to have a go i would recommend supports, and maybe it's just my poor size estimation capability,that i am aware of :), but it came out much smaller than i thought it would. This should definitely be scaled up to be practical as a bowl/plateau for your coffee table.

I printed this last night in black PLA on my Replicator 2 and it turned out great. I used the default Standard-res settings (10% infill, 2 shells, .2mm layer height) and it worked very nicely. I tried it with supports first and the supports got totally messed up after about a minute so I cancelled the build and resliced it without supports. It printed just fine without them since the curve of the bowl is pretty shallow. Although the end result needs a little cleanup with the filament hairs in between the cells, I'm really pleased with this one. A++++ would print again.

Wow, that came out a lot better than I thought it would. did you use support or just print it "au naturel"?

it was printed with support. still some sanding required :-)
