Jack o lantern pumpkin for battery tea light

3D model description

I wanted to make some halloween bits for my son using glow in the dark PLA and some battery tea lights I got of ebay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321049710676?var=510095296970&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

I have no connection to this seller, I got mine from here and they all worked fine and arrived in good time YMMV.

This has been resized from Makies http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:167043

I rescaled the pumpkin and lid so it was large enough to take the candle, I also added a recess inside to hold the candle and removed makies name from the base (sorry).

my candles we 37mm diameter and 40mm heigh with flame and they flicker which gives a great effect with out the problem of a real flame.

3D printing settings

I printed the body at 0.4 layer height at 30% fill and raft on my reprappro mono mendel with frog tape on the bed.

bed was at 65 deg and the nozzle was 220 deg for the glow in the dark PLA, this is hotter than I normally use for PLA but the glow in the dark seems to print better when hotter.

I printed the lid at 0.3 layer height and 40% fill and used a fan when printing the stork.
