We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
I wasn't able to name this thing until I started photographing it. It just seemed like I was taking pictures of a flower because it has similar surfaces, yet was all in white. And like a flower, it is interesting to view from many different angles.
This was my first design using the "autobots" in Groboto, a different kind of 3D design program. It took several iterations to scale the design to be printed. This print is about 75 mm across and took almost 7 hours to finish.
I used ReplicatorG on a MakerBot Replicator2 with the Replicator 2 slicing defaults and the following settings with white MB PLA:
Infill = 10%
Layer Height = 0.200
Feedrate = 40
Travel Feed = 55
Temperature = 220
I used a raft with full support in the orientation shown. Clean up wasn't too bad. The bottom of the "petals" needed a little work.
