3D Printed Cellular Cocoon Vase

Cellular Cocoon Vase, by Dizingof, with Acetone Vapor Treatment

With Acetone Vapor Treatment

This 3D printed cellular cocoon vase was printed in ABS at 0.15mm layer height. I kept the print speed pretty slow due to all of the details and overhangs, so this took about 24 hours to print.

After printing, I treated the whole thing in an acetone vapor bath (using a large deep fryer and a version of the method outlined by Austin Wilson and Neil Underwood here.)

A time-lapse video of the print can be found here.
