This is a stand for 18 vape atomizers with standard 510 threadings which fit into the given cavities. The final design reminded me of a flower bouquet, so i called it Atouquet, the ATOmizer boUQUET. It comes in three design variants:
- circular (best with clear/transparent colors)
- hexagonal (best with metallic colors)
- octagonal stands on a "floral" base (best with solid colors)
It's a pretty fragile thing and the longer stands tended to break in the first versions of this thing, but i think this should print successfully now. See Print settings for further details.
Feedback is greatly appreciated and i'm looking forward to your makes and comments. Thank you very much in advance.

15% Triangle (or multiples thereof)
Settings apply to Cura but should also be transferable to any other slicer.
Infill should be 15% triangle or multiples thereof (30%, 45%, 60%) because the stands are placed in a way that the cross sections of the triangle match perfectly into the thinnest parts of the stands for stability (check the layers, see screenshot). If not, try rotating the model by 30° and/or check the infill angle and or check whether the model is perfectly centered on the bed. Cura does this automatically but needs a symmetric model for that. This is what the "framed" variants are for. The frame shouldn't print as it is only 0.01 mm in height.
Z-leaps are highly recommended to reduce the risk of single stands being pushed due to slight inaccuracies in the layer printed before. A lowered movement speed further reduces that risk.
The cavities for the 510 threadings are designed pretty snugly (on purpose). If they turn out too tight, try reducing the flow a bit and/or use a negative value (i.e. -0.05 mm) for horizontal expansion.
The cavities may require a little filing, depending on how loose you want them to be.
