Any chance you've got any art to prove I'm tolerant of machinists? I'm kind of going through a thing right now...

Hi. It's a nice combination design. But it's not an arabic or islamic pattern. The 6 pointed star is common among jews, not moslims. I hope all people have religious tolerance & respect as you said.

Hey, just saw that comment now. I stumbled on that pattern by researching on an islamic pattern database which I unfortunately don't remember. Do you have any resources on the origin of this pattern?

Congrats! I thought you model was one of the best choices for a 3D Printed Christmas gift! I made a link from here: http://3dprintingninja.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-20-free-3d-printed-christmas-gifts.html

thanks for the feature!

Is this printed in a FDM machine? Which settings did you use?

No, it's SLS. I think it should be possible with FDM if you build a little base platform with support. The shape shouldn't require support basically but you need to have enough contact to the built platform in order to keep it sticking. I'd be excited to see some FDM results. Might give it a try on my own printer. The shape took pretty good advantage of shapeways old algorythm which was manily based on material used - it has only 1% density. Now the price on shapeways went up from 12 to 70$...

its sags alot on an fdm printer:(
