Description

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."

I use repetier and slic3r.

Layer Height= .25mm
Fill Density= 100%

I make sure to include a skirt on the first layer with 5 loops at 0 distance to reduce peeling. And the first layer should be pretty slow (25mm/s or less). After the first layer it's a breeze, just slow.

I hope that helps!

I'M HAVING TROUBLE SLICING THIS BEAUTIFUL OBJECT... ANY SUGGESTIONS??

Very stylish design. And I totally agree, the show off factor of a self made, self-printed object is quite something:-)

Instructions

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.

Enjoy!


I uploaded another .stl in which I added a circle to the perimeter and adjusted the height to 5mm.
