Just in time for the holidays!
These beautiful two color candy stripes are easily made on a single extrusion printer!
Start by printing any of the models in vase mode with solid tops/bottoms first in one color filament, then print another in a different color. Flip one over and screw them together, it’s that simple.
But beware… they’re addicting. Don’t believe me? Print the “cant_put_me_down.stl” first. That's the first one I printed on Thanksgiving morning and took it to my sister's for family dinner. Everyone couldn't stop playing with it and by the end of the night, not only had it survived (pre-teens!) but now moves together very smoothly.
I’ve started playing around with hollow centers and chamfers where the colors meet just to start… but I get the feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg with these things.
Definitely thinking of running LEDs up through the center for lighted lamps but share what you think might also be cool.
Oooh, how about a lighthouse model? Rotating barber pole?
