I printed this vase, generated entirely mathematically from a few funky tessellation and deformation functions, to test my 3D printer’s new calibration. The walls of the vase are paper thin at 0.4mm, and there’s very little room for error. And yet the print is perfect, with a consistent thickness and sharp but non-‘steppy’ edges. Really impressed by (and grateful for) my Ultimaker and my calibration technique that uses hard measurements, spirit levels and calipers in lieu of the built in self-calibration regime. REC 2.85mm PLA filament, printed at 60/220C. Using for Joris aka outer contour spiralisation, medium quality settings (.1mm layer height, .4mm line width).
