Summary

I wanted a more complete Rose, so I took a basic rose and added stuff 🙂 Both open and closed versions. Thorns can be a single color, 2 color glued, or dual extruder.

Added vase mostly stolen from Microsoft’s Rose (I like this rose better though). Fixed smallish pin holes on stem.

Instructions

Rose with Thorns & Stem & Bits


I didn’t modify the rose, but everything else is brand new from scratch.

Printing:


I printed everything at .2mm layer height with no supports or raft, 10% infill (though not much actually uses infill, you could probably get away with less). Supports are built-in to the sepal models where needed.

  • Print the open &/or closed roses
  • For each rose, print a set of the sepals (leafy looking things), snap off the supports and center supports when done. The center is a bit tricky, I could probably do better, but wanted to post this for folks…
  • For each rose, print a stem, here it gets tricky
    • Easiest is just to print the 1 color stem
    • There’s also a stem with holes for the thorns so you can print them in different colors, unfortunately they don’t fit well, so expect some work
    • There’s also a dual-extruder thorn version, which seems to work better, but uses a lot of filament for the effect (because of the tall walls)
  • For each rose, print a pin (or use 3mm filament sections). The original rose was designed for 3mm filament, but you may have to either shrink the pin or file the holes a tiny bit. Alternatively, just glue them together.

Assembly:


If you built separate stem & thorns, glue the thorns to the stem, probably needs a little filing, good luck!

Put the pin in the rose, attach the sepals, and then attach the stem. Test it first, you may need to file the holes.
