3D model description

I made this lantern for the Moon Festival. But it's also a handy little container with a twist top.

The lantern is sized for LED tea lights but it can be scaled up or down if you need a selection for your moon festival decorating.

I have included a solid model and a vase mode version. The light comes through a lot better in the vase mode version. And vase mode prints up a lot faster in case you are looking to print a bunch like me. :-D

**NOTE: The lid for the vase mode version still needs to be printed in "normal" mode.

UPDATE: I started scaling up the vase mode lantern and started having trouble printing the top section.... so I have added a vase mode version that doesn't have the top. The lid won't fit this version but it has a nice look to it also. :-D

If you are looking for other Moon Festival things, you can have a look at my "Hanging Rolling Bunny Lantern" and "Hanging Star Fruit Lantern".

3D printing settings

The lantern prints without supports.

For the lid, it looks like it would need supports but I have just been printing mine without supports and the results have been fine.
