SummaryExperimenting with twisting lofts in Onshape, cane up with this vase design. The print in the photos was scaled 125% in the Z direction only. My spool was binding a bit at the end so the photo has shows some cracks in the layer adhesion. Printed in glow-in-the-dark (very weakly) PETG from MakerGeeks. Was on sale, so can't complain to much. Scaled might make nice LED tealight holders. Timelapse of the print: https://youtu.be/8XWSvPbybXoPr...

Yes, my printer has noticeable z-banding. It's a feature I wanted--yeah, that's the ticket. (Ball screws shouldn't do this, and eventually will find a way to minimize it--taking suggestions.)How I Designed ThisNo apparent twist feature n Onshape so working on some experiments using the lofting feature.
