Zeus swirled his ambrosia for a while, contemplating the furious storm he was about to unleash; putting down his chalice on the coaster, he noticed how most fitting its pattern was for the impending bolts soon to be delivered over the heads of mortals far and wide.

This design results from a diffusion-limited aggregation simulation. The simulation models a process whereby particles move randomly around a medium and cluster together to form an aggregate structure. Such fractal structures form in many physical processes, such as dielectric breakdown and crystal growth.

The coaster has a diameter of 92 mm.

Materials and methods


Prints at 0.2 mm layer height. The base and pattern are 2 mm and 1.4 mm high respectively, so you can issue a color change command at the 2.20 mm mark to print them in different colors.

To slice the models:
In PrusaSlicer import the base, then add the pattern as a part.
In Cura import both models, select both of them, and merge them.

Use ironing on the topmost surface.
