3D model description

Set of tealight holders made for celebration of Chinese New Year (also known as 'Lunar New Year')

I tried to put some symbologic to this models (mostly with numbers and flora related to Year of Ox)

Free sample (ox-hanzi original model)

Files are in two zips. As there are version with and without the bottom.
All models are shown on first two images with all file names on the second image. Versions without bottom are with 'HOLE'.
There is one additonal model for 2x bigger size (8x bigger volume). Ox-head_blessing_BIG - you can put normal candle inside instead of tealight

Tested with tealight on PLA prints. No deformations were noticed (nor in walls nor in bottom) but there can be some if you will use bigger and fatter candles - be advised.
For more light use transparent filaments.

Made in Blender 3D
Printed with White PLA and Yellow PLA (big print) from ECO Filaments on JGMaker with 0.2mm layer hight.

More Tealight covers:

Edit 25 I 2021
Updated all the models.
Remodelled ox nose holes (will print better now)
Resized all the models (slicers should now have less problems to set it right)

Edit 04 II 2021
New model made for 2x bigger print (8x bigger volume)
Year Of The Ox Cover_Ox-head_blessing_BIG
~18,4cm diameter

3D printing settings

Models are made for 0.4mm nozzle.
It's a single wall width on yellow parts on renders

Always check your model in slicer in layer view as there are parts with just one wall (yellow color in renders, holes are white). It should not happen (models were tested) but if you will have more holes in view than shown in models you will need to change line width to little smaller (like 0.39 instead of 0.4).

It looks good with 0.2mm layer hight but as it is for decoration I reccomend to use a better resolution.

Set print to 3 walls, no infill needed.

No supports are needed but you may need little more cooling on some models.
