Unfortunately this model was just way too flimsy to be printed in Stainless Steel, but comes out rather well in WSF.

The chainwork is just 1mm diameter 'wires' and the numbers 1.5mm thick by about 12mm tall.

To finish this model, I'll be painting it, probably antiqued brass with gold coloured numbers (unless anyone has any beter suggestions).

Woah, that is trick! 3d printing combined with unique designs never fails to amaze me; some part of me expects that to just collapse in on itself...

How flexible is it? Does it cave any if you poke the numbers?


When in doubt... Duct tape!

I know it's unlikely, but I'm wondering if it ever lands on a corner, especially being probably very light.

Thanks Embarassed

The model is quite stable, I just tested it on a set of scales... pressing on the upmost face, the scales went to 350g before I felt it was the right time to stop... the model 'gave' some, but didn't crumble.

It will balance on a corner, but the biggest downfall is that it will stop on an edge maybe 2 times out of every 40 throws.

On a smooth surface? Doesn't look as if it would sit flat that way, but like I said being light, it doesn't have the force making it to decide on a face to land on.

at 0.91g it doesn't have the weight behind it, but it does bounce Smile
