Great objects! I wish you'd let them speak for themselves though instead of "utilizing" all that bs...

So, you'd rather they just post the pictures and then get dozens of people posting questions asking "How did you get them to balance?" or this or that...!

First off, I'm sorry for being a bit grumpy... I have no problem with there being a text, it's just the style and content which grates... I know, it's not aimed at the likes of me, it's there to be copied by re-bloggers who don't know much about 3d printing anyway and will be impressed by the bold claims... whoops, here I go again, time to take my happy pills...

While the images do speak volumes by themselfes, there are those such as myself that appreciate the commentary. Sharing some of the technical details may seem superfluous to some, but to others, especially other designers and others who enjoy contemplating the technical complexities, it has value in that it fosters innovation, providing mental stimulus that lead to new ideas.

Second one looks almost exactly like an Alexander Calder.
