Yea! My sculptures arrived!|
OK, it's not really everything. Besides what's pictured here, I actually bought another ornament and another of the smaller rectangle RBSs. But at least you get to see one of everything I ordered. I'm pretty happy with what I got.

This ornament works much better than the previous revision. See the video above. The marbles get to the end bucket but they don't make it to the center of the end bucket. That really doesn't bother me because it does make it to the bottom. I'm very pleased with this sculpture and I think this one is done as far as revisions.
The loop test didn't work like I'd hoped. However, the loop part does work if I tilt the sculpture about 30 more degrees! I'll probably try to redesign this one and see if I can slope the starting part more and get it completely working. This sculpture was sort of squished in shipping but I was mostly of able to bend it back. It's very tiny and very delicate. It really needs to have a base because the stilts are very fragile.
Theatre Masks Earrings
I made the Theatre Masks earrings for my 16 year old daughter who loves theatre class. She's pretty much a theatre fanatic. I'm very pleased with how these turned out. I hope my daughter likes the earrings.
Ornament RBSs or Big Earring RBSs

Well, neither of these really worked much. However when I put the big marble on the little sculpture, the little sculpture worked some of the time. See the video. I figure I need to make the marbles bigger and slope them just a little more and they may actually be fine. They are super tiny and I really like them. They are perhaps the smallest RBSs out there? A crazy lady could probably wear two of the smaller ones as big earrings. They're so cool! The larger one is very delicate and sort of squished in shipping. The smaller one seems more sturdy.

Seeing you're using WSF you probably need more weight for all your problems. Have you tried printing in a denser material? How about using marbles? Another thing is, with WSF there is a lot of friction. I wonder if they'd work in glaze. Maybe if you polished it down a little.

Have a look for "Gravitram" on youtube; rolling ball sculptures by Shab Levy, the man who invented them ... he's also an avid 3-D photographer, by the way
