Thank you Daddymack.

For the thickness of the spokes I would say about 0.4mm, I think that is the limit of what can be done with the 3D printer EOS Formiga P 100.

This model is amazing, it is flexible but also very stable (you can put a 1kg soap on it, it will not deform but I know, finding a 1 kg soap is not easy Very Happy ).

In addition this object is extremely sensual, very pleasant to touch.

Once again I am very impressed by the possibilities offered by Shapeways, it's good for me because I love pushing the limits !

May be it's a little bit more, difficult to say. I don't know how to measure thickness with Blender, if someone know...

Price is From $ 33.77 but with a huge markup for me Very Happy

Very nice, very nice!! But it must be terrible to clean it from when the soap gets wet and runs through! Smile

I printed my 3D heads with a very thin shell. When I measured the printed models they were roughly 0.5 mm. That seemed to work just fine. No worries there. I assume most printers CAN print very well, but they always put a margin to avoid complaints.

This model is beautiful. I really like when people can take a seemingly mundane object and turn it into something as sculptural as this.
I've been trying to make a similar object in 3DS max involving an array of similar shapes around a central point, but so far I've had a hard time getting it to work the way I want. How difficult was this to make, and was in done entirely in Blender?
