Customizable design for vases based on a star pattern. Adjust properties including but not limited to the number of points on the star and the amount of twist to generate interesting designs.

Contains what is probably a very inefficient Star module. I couldn't find a similar function in the OpenSCAD MCAD library, but this hack does the job.

Intended to be printed with zero infill and zero top layers (or, just stop the print around 90%).

Part of my Customizable Containers series.


I printed the star-vase.stl sample in brown PLA on my Printrbot Simple using 0.15 mm layer height, 10 bottom layers, and spiral vase mode (1 continuous perimeter/no infill).

Hi, thanks for models. Can I please ask if you can provide these models without top (zero top layer)?

Glad you like them. Frankly it is much simpler to generate these as solid objects. What printing software do you use? If you use zero infill (hollow) and cancel the print right before it prints the top layers you can achieve the same effect even if your print software does not allow you to control the number of top layers.
