Print, preferably with colored plastic. The two pieces are designed to snap together-- if I've miscalculated please let me know so I can correct it.

Edit note! This is not an easy build due to the many delicate petals! Try scaling it up considerably bigger to make it easier!

Printed just fine on my Ultimaker, but I had to slice it with support printed under the rose leaves. When it was done, I hot glued the rose to the leaves. To add a finishing touch, I cut off about 7" of filament and attached it to the bottom of the rose leaves object. To do this, I took one end of the cut filament and held it against the hot glue gun extruder to make the filament end to boom out at the end. This gave me a larger surface area to glue the filament "stem" to the leaves object. The hot glue didn't feel quite strong enough so I finished it off with some CPVC cement and it is very rigid... but I've got to come up with something to take the stink off of it!

Anyway, I've got a date tonight to give it to. Wish me luck and thanks for the great model!

This was a great gift for Mother's Day. You know how every mom wants something hand made. I'm terrible at doing anything crafty, but technology, that I'm pretty decent at.

It takes a lot of clean up with an exacto knife, but it's not that bad. Just remember all the white dots from the cuts will turn back to the proper color once you hit them with a hot air gun.

Nice design! The two pieces snap together great and this project is definitely scalable.

It printed a little... terribly. That may have been my skein settings, however, so I'll calibrate more and give it a try again later.

The rose is probably not a particularly fault-tolerant build. It has lots of narrow columns and even a well-calibrated machine would probably need a bit of tweaking.

The biggest issues occurred when it decided that the petals were better done as simply a loop, which had no inner structure and fell apart. It actually would work a lot better larger, which is something I'll be doing sometime soon. Nice blog post by the way!
