#3DxBeMine – Rose with stem by tc_fea #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3D
From the talented and prolific designer tc_fea comes one of the most iconic printable roses on Thingiverse. Tony “tc_fea” Cervantes has just crossed the 100 posted model threshold (he is also the father of Solidoodle founder Sam Cervantes!) and remains one of my favorite designers on Thingiverse because he is always on the look for clever ways to make use of the printing process, and with such dead-simple cheats that even those still shaping up their DIY printers can participate.
By splitting the design at a horizontal flat boundary where the bud meets the stem, Tony has planned this model to be easily printed in halves on any desktop 3D printer. Many of us who have printed it have pounced on the opportunity to switch colors for the two halves to create unique (and/or shocking) gifts. To date, this is the only flower from Thingiverse that I have ever received as a gift — thanks to sweet Nick Brewer! 😉
