what software did you use to design this?
Beautifully done!!!!

I thought i was having trouble printing it but it turns out that the model doesn't work in vase mode in slic3r-PE 1.40.1.

At 2.40mm high (0.2mm layer height) things go very wrong.

Here's a screen shot from preview mode. My printer did exactly this, so i killed the print. A solid model would probably solve this problem by letting the slicer figure out the spiral by itself.

I recommend you to try with Cura. It was sliced in Cura 3.4.1 for 0.15mm layer height.

I am no longer interested in printing this model.

If you create a solid model, everybody can print it as a "vase" (only bottom, and wall, no infill and top), and don't need to worry about the wall thickness.

Thank you for advice.
