Designed this several months ago and never bothered to post it anywhere. Had this picture of it on the PCTPE filament page on LulzBot.com and someone asked for the model, so here it is.

The Gosper fractal isn't quite as loft'n'twist friendly as the Koch Snowflake fractal, but still pretty happy with how this turned out.

how can this be a vase if it is a whole solid object? can you post one like the picture in the description? Is there a setting or something in cura that i can do to make this a vase?

In Cura you can turn on "Spiralize the outer contour" in the expert settings and you will get a single wall around the perimeter. Slic3r actually does a better job with vases, and you can print either a spiralized single wall or multiple walls for a stronger vase.

The benefit of printing a vase this way is that there is no variance in the wall thickness of the model that the slicer has to add infill to.
