A neat little glass piece created by glassblowing student Kenny Galusha at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

This piece was scanned using 123D Catch, then processed in Meshmixer and netfabb Studio Basic to make it manifold and 3D printable.

I have included the fully-textured cleaned OBJ mesh exported from 123D Catch, as well as the original 123D Catch project file (.3DP). Please remix!

This piece was scanned at the same time as another piece, the 'spiral wonton' ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:50574 ) so the 123D Catch project will include it.


Due to the unusual tapered shape of the object, I actually recommend printing it upside down (as oriented in the STL file) with full support. You may be able to print it right side up with full support, but that'd result in more wasted plastic.

I used 0.2mm layer height, 10% and 2 shells on a Makerbot Replicator using Grape Candy ABS filament.
