I was wondering what Cura (or other slicing software) settings others have used to print this. I'm new to 3d printing but my printer is having a lot of trouble with the vertical diagonal lines of the triangles. I'm trying the small basket. The pictures of all the makes of this object look great so I must be missing something. Am using PLA. The diagonals all come out stringy and warped for me.

Now if only they were stack-able...

When I try to make the large one (large_hex_box.stl) slic3r will fail to output the gcode. Well actually it will output it but it takes 3-4 hours. No other prints have taken this long to convert. Then when printing it fails half way through. Is there anything I can do to fix this? BTW Cura will not work for me and my printer :( xyzprinting

Made the mini container... Works great, nice design. Solidoodle 3 printer
