Today I got around to printing a second version of a cup I designed. It has the map of the world around it. The stereolithography file for the cup looks like a solid piece. It must be printed using the spiral vase method. The cup bends when squished, but holds its shape.
I couldn’t get parts of the world map to stay above the surface with the first iteration. It took a while before I figured out how to keep it from caving in when it was rounded. I continued to try different things until it worked. I am happy with the results.
