3D model description
A spiral tree designed to print in spiral mode! Perfect for the holidays, I designed this tree for tea lights and made a forest that I shared with family and friends. The "base" is the raft printed with the tree. This tree was designed using Mathematica.
I printed them in vase mode two at a time using the duplication mode on my MakerGear M3-ID Rev. 1 printer.
I used a translucent red and translucent green PLA filament. They also look good with clear or natural filament. I just don't have any of those left for photos. (Maybe I'll print some more tomorrow.)
They stack together well for easy storage.
Designed in December 2018.
Note: The model in Simplify3D looks like it has problems, but it slices perfectly and looks fine in the print preview.

I am a high school math teacher and 3D printing hobbyist. I have been 3D printing since 2017 and enjoy making things for my classes and my own children and home in San Diego, California, USA.
I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Prusa MK3S as well. I started a 3D printing sub-site abbymath.com/3DPrinting, but it needs some updating.
