Lotus Flower Puzzle 3D print model
This is a simple puzzle that forms a Lotus Flower when completely assembled :-) It begins with the base(.stl) and the leaves can be stacked on that to form the Flower.
For people who want more challenge there is an option 2 :-). They can start with base OPTION2 partA. With option 2 its much harder to assemble the Flower because the leaves 7 have noting to rest on but must be kept in place by the weight of the other leaves.
Have you chosen for option 2 but wished you just printed the base.stl? Then just print base OPTION2 partB instead to make the puzzle easy again :-). See the included screen shot for a better impression.
Of each leave there are six. In this screen shot leaves 2, leaves 3 and leaves 4 are depicted in red and white. Leaves 1 are white and leaves 5 red. Leaves 6 & 7 are depicted in green.
That makes 43 peaces to make the puzzle complete. Of course If you went with option 2 there are 44 peaces :-)
Then there is an OPTION3 & OPTION4 for the DIY people :-) These bases have wiring holes included. You could change this puzzle into a Lamp by printing the parts in Translucent material.
This Model is FDM printer tested with an 0.4mm Nozzle and 2mm resolution without support material at 100% size. I did use a Brim for leave7.stl but it was not necessary after all (in my case) It works but with this Nozzle size the smallest you can go. If you have a bigger nozzle its recommended to scale up the model a bit. If you want to scale down the model its better to use a smaller Nozzle size. The size of the completely assembled Model is 213,248mm x 219,394 mm and 107,933mm high
