OpenSCAD in a Tweet (3 in 1)

3D model description

Hi

Recently i've start being active in Twitter.

Some of my tweets are small OpenSCAD figures using less than 140 characters.

I printed 3 of them and i decided to share.

I have much fun writting creative code that fits in a tweet. I encourage to all the OpenSCAD programmers to try and share their own tweets.

The Code
Copy-Paste this code in OpenSCAD, try and tweak to get your own versions.

Fractal Pyramid:
f(90);module f(w){cylinder(w,w,w,$fn=4);if(w>2){for(i=[0:3])rotate([0,0,i*90])translate([w,0,0])f(w/2);translate([0,0,w])f(w/2);}}

Dragon Egg
for(i=[0:360]) rotate([0,i*0.25,i*137.5]) translate([2*sqrt(i),0,0]) rotate([0,i*0.15+30,0]) cylinder((i%7==0)?i/25:2,4,0.5);

Vase / Planter
$fn=99;linear_extrude(height=9,twist=90,scale=2)polygon([for(i=[0:359])let(r=5+sin(i*6))[r*sin(i),r*cos(i)]]);

And of course...Have fun!

3D printing settings

Printer:

BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos

Rafts:

No

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.2 it's ok

Notes:
Rotate the Egg 180º and add a Brim to have a good bed adhesion.

Use 'vasemode' for the vase (see belowhow to do it in Cura)
