Hi all,

Well, these arrived late last week.

This model let me do two things; it let me sample the other Strong and Flexible colours as well as the white I'm already familiar with, and also the... well the repeatability of the 3d printing process.

The simple design made no concessions towards the material, that is, the model on the computer tessellates perfectly, and I was interested to see how it would work in the real world.

The pieces fit together pretty well... actually really well and it's quite cool to see them together Smile

I had the idea this might work as a pendant if printed in SS... but I'm having difficulty designing in a large enough loop to take a cord or chain without destroying the tessellation properties.

There is a tiny loop on the rear but it's <1.5mm so too small to be practical... back to the drawing board I guess...
