<p>congratulations to all you making and sharing pictures of those beautiful prints</p>

<p>These are awesome!! Thank you for sharing!</p>

<p>tc_fea, I would like to print >100 of these with some embossed text for wedding favors, but I can't do that on an STL file in Autodesk Inventor. I was wondering if, by any chance, you drew the rose top in Inventor or if the CAD/3D software you used can export an .ipt file. If so, would you be willing to send me a converted copy? Let me know, thanks a bunch!</p>

<p>Sorry I do not have the capability to do that. I used an old educational version of ANSYS that does not allow the export of geometry. I wrote an ANSYS ADPL program to convert a mesh directly to a .stl file.</p>

<p>pcdangio and Josejuako you are both most welcome</p>

<p>Printed some red roses and a vase for my fiancee on Valentine's day and got mega brownie points :) Thanks for the designs!</p>

<p>Thanks a lot . very nice parts !.</p>

<p>Those are some beautiful prints!</p>

<p>Hope I'll have enough time before Sunday to print some blue roses for my wife.</p>

<p>Nice!!<br>Just in time for mother's day.</p>

<p>This is a wonderful print. I want to print it in PLA, but don't want to have to glue them together. There must be an easy way to make a "snap-fit"? This is my special request. Thank you.</p>

<p>Superglue (CA) works fine with PLA.</p>

<p>Since the mating surfaces both print against the build platform, I don't see any easy way to add a snap fit. Any ideas?</p>

<p>Emmet's new pins might be the perfect thing!</p>


<p>I think you could just make a hole in each one and a pin could hold it all together.</p>

Parametric Snap Pins

<p>You could put a hole in the mating surface of both and use the double ended pin from this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10541. Or just a hole for a pin to make the gluing a little easier? (only offering the suggestion since you asked, I'm grateful for the model as-is!)</p>

<p>Do you remember what settings you used when you sliced yours? I'm not sure if I fat fingered someting, but it took forever to slice the flower and then estimated build time was 12 hrs.</p>

Pin Connectors V2

<p>thanks for the double ended pin suggestion.</p>

<p>I printed these parts on a Solidoodle 2 and a Solidoodle 3 since I had to print half dozen.</p>

<p>I sliced the parts at the low resolution 0.3 mm layer height using an older version of skeinforge (41). I did not use the latest Solidoodle download that uses slic3r. </p>

<p>My print times were: stem 2 hours 15 min, flower 3 hours 40 mins. The rose is an 80 mm x 70 mm x 60 mm print that uses a fair amount of plastic with all those petals. I tried to keep the petals thin all the way to the base. </p>

<p>There are at least 65 skeinforge parameters, so it is not practical to list them all here.</p>

<p>Thanks. That answers my question.I guess asking what settings without being more specific was a tiny bit open ended : )</p>
