Can someone slice this propertly?

Could someone send an example slicing of this thingiverse model? 

I really like it but I cannot seem to slice it without leaving blobs in the print. I did it on 0,15mm

The default Prusa settings seem OK, no need for support or any special settings.


I suggest you think again; thermoplastic candle holders are not a good idea and this object might be a significant fire risk.

wrong material

I would agree that if you're actually intending this to be a functional candle holder it would present a fire hazard.  But I would probably say that tea-light candles would be less risky than something where the candle wax is in actual contact with the model.  But caution is still warranted.  Yesterday I printed a candle stick holder in PLA just as a halloween decoration though I don't intend to actually put a candle in it.  it's just a prop.

Flame On! 💣

I think it would be fine for the LED candles they are selling these days, although if you were to print this in ABS or some other plastic with high resistance to ambient heat I think it would be fine as a real candle holder.


Avoid PETG and PLA for this if your planing to put real flame producing candles in it. personally I would just go with the LED candles.


Be Safe
