This 3D-printable bowl is perfect for candy and other goodies. Use it to serve your guest on a movie night and also show off your favourite hobby and 3D-printing skills!

We designed the bowl specifically for testing 3D-prints with large-bore nozzles. In this image we show the result of a 1.0 mm nozzle 3D-print at 0.8 mm layer height.

Even though it is possible to print this bowl at higher speeds, we kept it down to achieve a high-gloss shiny surface. The bowl is 136 mm wide and 60 mm tall. At around 20-30 mm/s it took less than two hours to print.

The bowl has a simple and decorative shape which makes it easy to print. To get rid of the layer-change zipper-line we used vase-mode in our print settings.

To make the bowl strong and achieve optimal transparency we 3D-printed the candy bowl using taulman 3D t-glase (PETT) filament.

I' didn't manage to get Curo to not print this solid... :(

The estimated time was 1h 40min, but the print appeared to turn out solid. How thick should the bottom become, when printing with Cura's vase-mode? Did I stop the printing process too early?

I printed the solid one on my LulzBot mini. With "spiralize the outer contour" ON and "Solid infill top" OFF in Cura. For my first attempt I had a "Shell thickness" of 1 mm. That is the double of the Nozzle Size on the LulzBot. That ended in a bowl with some strange stripes in addition to the pattern in the model. But when printing with a Shell Thickness of 0.5 mm that matches the nozzle size it turned out perfect.

Great design. I made a few as dishes in various colours combined with a spiral design at the bottom. I made another but used simplify3d to stretch it so it could be a lampshade.

I like this bowl it looks great when printed with Blue Glow PLA. the translucent colors come out really nice too. Printed them in purple, green, red and blue. the blue one's came out the best. I gave them out to a few Sensei at Nabashimba Cup in Dallas last week as gifts. They were well recieved.

Thank Ptnpowers for your kind words! We love that you appreciate the bowl and that you found a it useful as a gift. :)

Had to print one. Printed with clear pla and a 0.4 tip. Came out fine.....very delicate. Wife liked it.

Wow so beautiful! If made out of glass and sold on IKEA these would probably cost like 39 SEK.. if sold on some design house, it would cost probably around 799 SEK :P

So beautiful, yet simple. I love them! :)

Glad you liked it! :)

Who knows...? maybe IKEA could 3D-print such products for customers in the future.

That's an idea, they have probably already started thinking and planning for that ;) hehe

Yummy! Thank you for the tip using slower speeds with PETT!
