Flower Of Life
by 3dPrintNewsNow, published
This is a coaster-sized Flower of Life, a sacred geometrical figure.
It's about 5 mm thick and takes approx. 2 hours to print.
A nice thing to show off at parties:
"Oh, no thanks I brought my own coaster. That I made. On a 3d printer."
The height of the flower is kind of weird at 4.95mm, and so I sliced it at .2475mm layers to end up with an even 20 layers. That's probably not necessary; I imagine .25mm layers would work fine.
It took over 2 hours to finish on my Solidoodle 2, mostly due to the complexity of the extruder path.
I uploaded another .stl in which I added a circle to the perimeter and adjusted the height to 5mm.
