Fantastic design. My kudos and many thanks for sharing.
Printed one cup on my Ultimaker, 0.4mm nozzle and Cura 13.03 today.

Hi Joris,

Thanks for the great cup designs. We printed them all so far, in multiple colours. Can't wait to see the rest.

btw, so far from our tests, solid colours such as the black, white and purple colours showcase the cups the best. Translucents don't really do much for the cups, which is odd because normally vases and containers tend to really look good in translucents. I'm thinking the beautiful pattern must be the case where a solid really brings it out with the light and shadows playing the right visual display.

It is very hard to pick a favourite - at first glance week 1 and 5 are clear leaders printed in white/black, but once you print in gold, silver or purple, the others look fantastic as well. Cup Nr 2 looks awesome in Ultimachine gold as it looks like a solid piece of hardware.

Slicing the cups was a bit of an issue, Slicer just threw up all over the system, even on a Unix 64 Bit Server it used up 16GB of RAM and it still did not manage to slice it. It finally reported that "There are no layers".

Cura, on the other hand, did not break a sweat on any machine - windows, desktop Unix, or Unix Server. It worked very well.

Regardless, the Cura GCODE works very nice and the "Joris" setting on Cura is so awesome, we even blogged about it. How did you get a setting named after you? LOL....

The fantastic result though is a single walled cup, which is outstanding. These cups are spectacular, and we print them in PLA to show that with the right model, even PLA has an inherent elasticity to it.

Keep up the awesome work you do; can't wait to see the rest.


Thanks, just published a new one: Valentine...! [http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:49834http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...]

I would like to see pictures [and/or 'I made one's]

Weekly cup nr6 - Valentine

Yes, They are coming. I had been wanting to take nice pictures and we have a proper lightbox setup where I was hoping for putting these for pics, but I may just put them against a window and shoot them as such.

The reason for trying for a controlled environment is because harsh light really does not do justice the smoothness of the cups.

I'll put up at least a picture of each one today and then will go ahead and shoot some nicer pictures.

Thanks for the new cup, as always you do not disappoint.

Loving your cup-a-week designs, very inspiring stuff. Have you looked at islamic geometry? http://www.catnaps.org/islamic/geometry.htmlhttp://www.catnaps.org/islamic...
