Summary

Siamese Orchid, an asymmetric double vessel inspired by the complexity of these flowers.

Originally designed for glazed ceramics, but also seems like a good challenge for home printers.
Current images are preview renders.

If you would like to support my design efforts you can buy the ceramics version from straight from here:

Instructions

I have yet to try and print it, but the arms should be thick enough to print without a lot of support.
Any feedback is welcome!

I made it with my Huxley. Just a little messy on lower layers. Very nice shape! :)

Actually I made a derivative but the licence doesn't permit sharing of derivative files.

I found that I needed to reduce the vertex count (I used 90%) to get it to slice correctly without Slic3r crashing.

After that it printed very nicely at full size on the Mendel90 without any support and with virtually no stringing. A very nice challenge that would look even better at a finer resolution. :)

Awesome! :-)

That turned out really well!

Sorry about the restrictions, I hope to sort out this licensing business soon!
