Leahs Rose Vase

A long while back Leah asked me to design and print her a vase that would look good even if it didn't have flowers in. After some nagging I eventually got around to it. Glad I did as it's been a fun project.

Materials and methods

Update : 03/01/2016

I've added a 3D printed mold pattern for sand casting a lead weight to fir in the bottom of the water tube.

Also the water tube will require sealing with PVA or epoxy.


The vase is designed to be printed without supports.

The vase in the video was printed in PLA , with 0.15mm layer heights.

To use the water tube, fill with water and then lower the vase over it... add follower :-)

With some flowers the vase is a bit top heavy. If so add some weight to the base of the tube.
