Simple pot

This is a little pot that I'm quite proud of. It's a variation on a circular pot I made with a fluted top, but I applied the maelstrom
command in Rhino 3D. Since having the MakerBot I've really got into Rhino and feel quite comfortable with it, although it's complicated. I am sure beyond doubt that some of the ways I do things are sub-optimal and would make more experienced designers laugh!
However, the real reason I'm proud of this pot is that it was only by printing it that I found out how awful it was. It twists in your hand when you pick it up, which makes it fiddly. It looked great in 3D though!
