Vase with Climbing Rose

Designer Mark Wheadon

A  curvaceous asymmetric vase with a climbing rose emblem. This spiral vase print stands 20cm high yet uses less than 8m of filament.

How To

Slice with these settings:

3600mm/min speed
0.6mm perimeter width (suggested)
0.18mm layer height (low layer height and / or wide perimeter width needed for the vase’s shoulders)
No slow-down for perimeters, no slow-down for cooling
Single perimeter, spiral vase mode, no infill
5 bottom layers (suggested)
0 top layers

Run the velocity painting application or script with these settings:

where (centreXcentreY) is the centre of your priner bed in printer coordinates. So (0, 0) for deltas and (125, 105) for the Original Prusa i3 MK2 for example.

Drag the resulting GCODE file onto Simplify3D to preview the patterned print if you can, or move straight to printing if you can’t.
