    Very nice design. I like it. At the beginning I thought it was a cup for an egg and was wondering how you would insert the egg inside it, but for the coffee it is perfect.
    I would only worry about the sharp edges of the handle: the glaze could wear off at those edges. If you should round them a little bit (see the design rules): it would be safer.

    PS: if you edit your original message, you should have beside the file you uploaded under the column called "action" the link "Insert image into message body". Put your cursor in your message wherever you want to insert your image, and click on this link.

    thats a chamfered edge not rounded :) might still get the same problem with glaze.
    also have you added a slit that goes through the handle? will that print ok?

    well i tried to make it rounded but the software doesn´t let me make that because they are sizes under 1mm i´m working on that and yes the handle have a slit that goes trough it is aproximately
    3mm width i do this to make the cup with less material i don't know if it will print ok that have to be tested i will check that too thanks for the advice :)

    The slit wil remove some material but add some surface. As the price of Glazed Ceramic is depending on the surface, not the volume, this will not cut the price but instead will increase it.
    For sure, this pricing model is very different from what wa are used to, and it is quite paradoxal....
