    Just trying out shapeways, so have started with something basic.

    I have designed a Spanish chiminea tea light holder and was just wondering what thickness I should print it?

    (an electric tea light would be put inside)

    Do you think this would be ok to have a real tea light inside?

    I have just been doing some testing with some nylon and a tea light flame. Placing the nylon along the same profile as the chiminea and the nylon gets hot but doesn't melt/wrap. What about use over time as well?

    That depends on the size and the intended material.

    The size of it is:

    cm: 5.598 w x 10 d x 5.586 h in: 2.2 w x 3.9 d x 2.2 h

    I would print it in nylon white or black.

    Hello Aaron aka Star Burns :D

    Agreed 1 mm feels so much stronger than .75

    How is the lid held on?
    EDIT: ahh sry there is a circular line on the render. i assumed you removed the top half to place the tea light in. But i see you just slide it in through the window.

    WSF is actually flammable so I would NOT suggest using a real tea light.
    You can get cool LED teal lights to use instead...
