Hairy textured vase by kempton Mar 26, 2013

Description

The idea derives from countless failed prints on my Ultimaker the last two year. By pushing the machine to something it cannot do, new interesting things happen.

What a brilliant idea! A whole new technique to think about, thanks!

I sliced in Kisslicer with "vase" infill and got a base and loops.

Its true, it dosn't produce a base. On my slicer, Cura, i cannot have fill on the bottom layer, as this would then also apply to the "wings" that stick out of the model, creating the stringing as well.. I didn't use any raft.

For making it stick to the bed you could add 5 lines of skirt with 0mm start distance, basically creating a larger footprint on the first layer. i do this a lot on parts with a small footprint.

Are you sure about the 0% fill for the bottom layer? For me this produced no base, and the vase came unstuck a little way into the process. But when I add a fill I get stringing across the interior of the vase... do you use a raft?

That's awesome. Love the idea of using an "impossible to print" model for an intentionally different outcome.
