Very nice scan btw :)
The detail came out quite well :)

Also, of even more concern that is a copy of another persons artwork which you likely aren't legally allowed to share on a public website.
This is the flacy of 3D scanning, you cannot and should not scan a lot of things from a legal pespective, let alone post the resulting printable files on a website.

Are you gonna flood Thingiverse with that same comment on EVERY post that derived from a Makerbot Digitizer?

I can do whatever I want to do and you can keep complaining

As with all real candles (instead of LED candle simulators), plastic holders and especially PLA printed candle holders are a safety risk. The reason is simple, if the plastic melts or deforms for any reason from heat, then the chance of the candle falling over and starting a fire is likely. PLA loses strength and deforms at relatively low temperatures making it even more risky than ABS.
I realize you may think the risk of this is low, but it's better to at least acknowledge the risk and warn users rather than blindly assume it's all safe.

Thankyou Captain Obvious for pointing out this safety concern.
It's a never ending echo heard across thingiverse. If you do a search for 'candle holder', on almost every one you'll either see the warning in the Thing Info or in the Comments.

Thanks for explaining how fire is dangerous and being very wise
