Hi all,

Yesteday, I received at my office the package of what I ordered from Shapeways. As there are a lot of objects, not really related one to the other, I will do separate posts.
So let begin by the double marble pendants.
It is a pendant made of 3 separate pieces, that connect together thanks to 2 marbles.
There are 3 different designs, but I printed only 2:
the original one:
index.php?t=getfile&id=1331&private=0
the second variation (which is a wireframe):
index.php?t=getfile&id=1332&private=0
The first variation has not been printed yet.

The upper part has a little ring to put the necklace, and its round shape allow you to place a 16mm marble into it.
The marble can move freely inside it.
You can wear it like this, or add the middle part and a second marble or directly the ending part.
It is quite modular: obviously the upper part is mandatory, but the ending part is always optional, and the number of middle parts will allow you to use the number of marble you wish.
If you want the marbles to stay horizontally instead of vertically, you will have to use 2 upper parts, one at each end.
Of course you can change the colors of the marbles depending on your humor. Razz
Here are some other results:
index.php?t=getfile&id=1333&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=1334&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=1335&private=0

WSF is flexible enough to insert the marbles, but I am unsure if a metal printing could be done...

Anyway, I am very happy with this designs.
Oh, another interesting (or not) usage: with only one ending and one marble, you can make the marble roll and roll for hours in your hand (during a meeting for instance), exactly as my very first printing, the cubosphere... Very Happy
