Another screw cap container but this one has a pattern of stars for the grip and a star on the lid. A plain cap is included as part of the models but if you want to print the star it's really easy. Below there are instructions that will help with the set up. If you're having trouble, please post questions in the comments section.
I used a pearl white filament for half the star and a warm white filament for the second half. You can use any two different shades of any color to get the same effect.

0.4mm nozzle, 0.25mm layer height
You can print this with three different filaments without a multi material printer.
- Import Star Print 1st.stl, Star Print 2nd.stl, and Cap Print 3rd.stl
- You may have to import one at a time to keep them lined up. If you are using simplify3D you can reset their position by double-clicking on the model to open the scale and position options. In the upper left corner click "reset position." This will align all each part to the correct position.
- To avoid collisions with the parts of the star that have been printed on the bed, it is advisable to set your printer to do a "Z-hop" between each move. In simplify it is in the "FFF" settings under the "Extruder" tab. The setting is labeled as "Retraction vertical lift." A 0.5mm "lift" is enough to clear the star.
Motivation for the design
Praise is a pleasent motivator and my wife liked the first container so much I designed one for her that's a little more personal. She's originally from Texas.
