This was remixed from LoboCNC's Print-In-Place Iris Box (remix) I split the file for a two color printing.
I have a lot more designs so be sure to follow me here at Polymathic Designs to be notified about all my new designs.
Post your makes of this, I would love to see them.
Feel free to ask any questions about printing or to make requests.
ONLY WORKS WITH DUAL-EXTRUSION PRINTERS go to the original model for the single color version.
The bottoms of the 4 leafs print directly on the table and can be seen in the 4 slots in the bottom. To keep the leafs from breaking free during printing, I added 4 thin tabs attaching each leaf bottom to the outer ring. Use a razor blade or hobby knife to cut away these tabs.
The outer sphere is actually a dial that rotates. To free it, stick a small screw driver in the gap above the base ring and gently pry it free, working around the whole perimeter. Depending on how good your printer is with small gaps, you may need to insert a thin blade into the gaps at the top to free the leafs.
