And while the Vase Maker tool is optimized for seamless use with all of our latest generation of MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, if you have a MakerBot Replicator Z18 Printer, you can create and print vases up to 17.5 inches tall!

We Can’t Wait to See What You Make! Post your creations to Twitter and Instagram with the tag #makerbotvasemaker. Tip: For filling your vase, we recommend 3D printing our beautiful Spring Blossoms flowers available on the MakerBot Digital Store. However, if you want to use real flowers and water, find a small glass container and measure its height and diameter. Then, when using sculpting mode in Vase Maker, make sure the diameter of the vase’s opening is wide enough to fit your glass container inside. NOTE: The decorative bowls and vases created with MakerBot PrintShop’s Vase Maker are not guaranteed to be food safe, water safe, dishwasher safe, or microwave safe.
