A delicate vase with twisted undulations – flower not included! If you print this then please click on "I Made One" and upload a picture.


The is not your usual Yada Yada – it won't print properly if you just throw it at the slicer.

I suggest you slice this in spiral vase mode, with a reasonably thick perimeter width, say 0.5mm.

However, the base needs to be solid as its inward slope is far too steep to be hollow in vase mode.

Suggested settings:

  • Spiral Vase mode
  • No infill
  • One perimeter
  • Perimeter width 0.5mm or more
  • 0.2mm layer height
  • About 6mm of solid base, so at 0.2mm layer height that's 30 solid bottom layers (really!)
  • No top layers

If you don't have a spiral vase mode in your slicer then not to worry, it'll print fine with the above settings, minus the spiral option – perhaps with the "start each layer at a random point" ticked if your slicer has that option (to avoid a vertical seam).

This stands 18cm tall, but can be scaled to whatever size suits. If you change its size then don't forget to scale the number of solid bottom layers accordingly.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful design. Made one for my wife and she loved it. Will print some more for gifts.

Great stuff, I'm glad she liked it.

Worked perfeclty i printed two offer them and they came Out Great with the settings you told. The 6mm bottom really helps in my opinion, i also uploaded a pictures of the two vases

Agreed -- the thick base makes the vase more stable.
