Yet Another Koch Tealight Holder

3D model description

I took inspiration from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37117.

But I modeled it from scratch using Blender to adapt the shape and the dimensions to my candles.

I started from a Koch curve made in Inkscape using this tutorial:

EDIT 2013.11.25 - I added a 3D file with 1 mm wall thickness.

EDIT 2014.09.15 - Do you want to learn how to make it yourself in Blender? read here: http://marcoalici.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/koch-snowflake-tealight/

3D printing settings

Print bottom solid layers, only perimeter (0% infill) and no top solid layers.

I sliced it using slic3r 1.0.0RC1 and spiral vase option with following settings:

; layer_height = 0.25

; perimeters = 1

; top_solid_layers = 0

; bottom_solid_layers = 4

; fill_density = 0

; perimeter_speed = 30

; infill_speed = 60

; travel_speed = 130

; nozzle_diameter = 0.5

; filament_diameter = 1.75

; extrusion_multiplier = 1

; perimeters extrusion width = 1.00mm

; infill extrusion width = 1.00mm

; solid infill extrusion width = 1.00mm

; top infill extrusion width = 1.00mm

; first layer extrusion width = 0.70mm
