Seed of Life

My latest 3D project was to print a sphere with the Seed of Life Design on in.  I created it in Tinkercad; Seed of Life. On the bottom of the object I left a 12 mm hole for a LED light.

It took me numerous attempts to get it printed.  Finally, I had to add supports to the sphere in Cura, the 3d slicing program, to get it to adhere to the plate.  Approximately 10 hours in to the 13 hours print, I noticed the translucent filament that the printer was using was about to run out.  I therefore replaced the filament with white.

Here is the final result.  The printer obviously needs some more adjusting.

After I put the light in the bottom of the sphere, it look so good I made a video.  The video is posted on YouTube.  Seed of Life Video

Here are some pictures with the LED light.
