A playful vase or flower pot.
Made from a four generation binary tree, with a two generation cavity.

I designed this for the GrabCAD/Figulo Ceramics challenge, but I missed the deadline.
Since it was intended to be shared, here it is too :-)
Wall thickness should be enough for professional ceramics printers.
So I guess it will print fine on most home printers.
To support my design efforts you can also buy the ceramics version from my Shapeways Shop here:
I use an Up! printer myself, so I just load and print it.
Up! settings that worked for me:
Z Resolution: 0.3mm
Base height: 2mm
Part Angle<: 45 Deg
Part Surface: 3 Layers
Support Dense: 3 layers
Space: 10 Lines
Angle<: 50 Deg
Stable support: On
Unsolid model: On
While it fits on the platform as oriented in the file, I chose to rotate it 45 on the z-axis before printing, just to be safe.
I used the apply-thin-ABS-sludge-to-platform method to prevent curling/warping.
I lack in-depth knowledge about other home printers, but I think it will pose no real problems.
Or just use a professional print site and have it printed for you.
If the polygon count is too high for your software, you can use free meshlab to reduce using the quadric edge collapse decimation filter.
