A geometric egg with a lattice for the shell.


Must be rotated 180 deg to print on the flat base. Prints well standard size and at 195% with 0.15mm layers, 2 shells, and 15% infill.

Note: In MakerWare the standard size takes 30+ min to slice. The larger 195% version takes well over an hour (i typically let it generate the path overnight). The print times are ~3.5 hours for the small one and 11.5 hours when printed at 195%. Both prints were done using a Replicator2.

I tried to make this, scaled to ~123mm high, but it eventually broke from the platform. It would be great if you could add a thin disk to the base to increase adhesion to the the platform. The disk could be broken off later.

Make sure to rotate 180 deg about x or y axis. The program it was crated in has the Z axis flipped. It should print just fine with the given base. You can also try printing with a raft (i do that for the larger print just to make sure it does not come loose)
