This one may be the first of a generative series based on reef structures (corals, anemones, etc..). I called 'Plastic reef' and it's just a lot of decorative stuff from some OpenScad experiments.
I don't know how many generators will made, i have a few that looks promising and eventually i'll upload here. Feedback and new ideas are well received.
As many of my generators, the Customizer produces 2 sightly variations based on parameters provided.
In this one, the customizer generates 5 files: One for the full anemone (tentacles+base in one single piece), 2 random tentacles and 2 random bases. You may choose your favorites and print.
I've used some code from Torleif's openscad website: https://openscadsnippetpad.blogspot.com.es/2017/05/1-dimensional-noise.html
Hope you enjoy it.
There's no 'toleration' margin between tentacles and base parts.
To have a good fit you may need adjusting your slicer parameters in order to compensate the excess of plastic.
Reducing flow, increasing XY scale of base in 1% or 2%, using 'Horizontal expasin' parameter (in Cura slicer) or just sanding the pieces until they fit.
No supports needed, the angle of tentacles is tweaked for avoid overhangs
Few long tentacles, high twist
