Printing Vases with Ultimaker

Some time back I found the "Spiralize" options in the Expert settings for Cura, the slicing program that I use when I'm printing with Una the Ultimaker. This lets you take a solid object and generates a print that just wraps a single layer print round the outside of the object.

It is called "Spiralize" because the print ends up being one long spiral, with the head laying down successive layers as it goes round and round in circles. The print that you get is very thin, rather like a lampshade, but if you use translucent materials (like the  nice transparent fibre from Faberdashery) the results are rather good.
