WAY too thin with too thin of gaps. I printed with a .8mm nozzle in petg, and even with petgs flex it was absolutely destroyed while attempting to separate the leaves (which was impossible anyhow) I wasted nearly a kg of filament.

I'm sorry you wasted filament. I'll be sure to update the description with my print settings and the trouble I faced. Thanks for letting me know. I have two of them that I never got to work and they work nicely as decorative bowls.

Great work !
If you do not mind, please make a 160 mm diameter version for me.

Thanks for your interest. While I don't really have the time to edit the scad file, the comments that I've added to it should help. Also, I just took a few minutes to check and if you resize the stl to 57% you would have one that's really close to 160mm. I separated the shells in my slicer program and took a look at where the pins end up. It should work just fine. You could also resize the original that this was based on and inspect it in your slicer similarly.

Thank you for your advice. I will try resizing and printing.
