I wanted to see how thin of a wall I could print. So I designed this vase with .5mm walls and it printed great.

It looks great with some small led lights inside of it.

2/2/13 Added vase_solid.stl


Don't scale these down because if the walls are any thinner I don't think they will print. I included 3 sizes to choose from.

I printed using Sailfish fine settings with:
.15 layer height
20% infill (for the base)
120mm/s feed
180mm/s travel

Any chance you could make a solid version of this? It is much easier to slice and tweak when the model is solid instead :)

Solid was added.

If you would have used Cura for slicing, you would have found the simple setting 'Vase' which would slice a vase-like object from a solid shape (no infill, single wall, bottom, no top, spiral to the top). a little more effort would allow you to tweak to your hearts delight.
But perhaps makerbots, like up! etc. don't understand gcode?
