Tea Light Stairway from Hex-Tubes

3D model description

I wanted to design a quad tealight holder in stairway form.
However, it should not be just four boxes with different heights and e.g. 10% infill.
On the one hand, the filament consumption would have been far too high for me, on the other hand, that would be boring as well.

The result is something in which the support structure is fully visible and thus part of the design.
For me, it looks pretty ;-) .... and through the use of transparent filament, interesting light effects come about when the candles are the sole source of light in the room.

The printing works without support and without retraction (nearly).
Regarding filament needs, Cura has reported 67g / 8.5m, although...printing time was about six hours.
