This project was completed as part of a 3D printing course at Michigan Technological University. Assuming a standard roll of PLA filament costs $22, this part costs $2.84 to print. This is a savings of $95.16 compared to the jewelry holder I used as inspiration.
Each tier is printed individually. The posts are also printed individually and snap-fit to the bowls. For assembling the four tiers and posts, you do not need any glue or other fasteners. The largest tier (first tier) is 154mm in diameter and the other three tiers are smaller in diameter. The largest bottom tier takes approximately 3 hours to print using a MOST- Athena Delta printer and the smallest top tier takes approximately 25 minutes.
