3D model description

Extruded fractal flake prototype.

A predecessor to the fractal flake vase I made some years ago. The basic shape and parametric model is almost the same: A variation of the Koch-curve with hexagons, which changes in rotation and fractal-depth along the extruded direction.

The geometry was created using Rhino3D and Grasshopper.

3D printing settings

Printer: Generic
Rafts: No
Supports: No
Resolution: 0.3 mm
Infill: 0
Filament brand: Generic
Filament color: Generic
Filament material: PLA


The file should be printed in spiral or vase mode, where only the outer shell is used. With a thickness of 0.4-0.6 mm there's a good compromise between stiffness and translucency.
