Experimentation with swirling shapes and form. I expect I shall use these in future designs..
Included are the following files:
swirling_urn.stl (This is a solid model)
swirling urn_hollow.stl (This model has 2mm thick walls and a reinforced base)
I think it looks prettiest with metallic or translucent colours.
This is a solid model and should you wish it to print hollow, you will need to use a slicer with a vase mode. Slic3r allows you to do 3 bottom layers and no top layer with a 0% infill. There is a spiral vase mode in later versions of Slic3r but it will only allow a one layer thickness. The advantages of printing with a solid model like this is the freedom to choose wall thickness and a shorter slicing time.
A user requested I include a pre-hollowed version of my urn. This model has 2mm thick walls and a reinforced base. Bear in mind this file is going to take a lot longer to slice!
