You need the 13 skinny rhombs too (preferably in an other color) to have a complete set. The tiles are 2mm thick and their edges have a length of 20mm.
The connecting rod is inteded to be cut off.

Results of my testprint in "Strong White and Flexible":
It comes as a wobbly snake and it takes one only five minutes to loosen the parts from the connecting rod.

still wating for the skinny rods

@ Shapeways Team On your notice of unprintability I have blocked the model for Sandstone & Full Color Sandstone. I'm sorry that I didn't consider that this material would be too brittle for the long & thin connector rod in this Model. If you can think of another possibility to keep the Tiles in one batch please tell me. Meanwhile I will order it in some color of Strong & Flexible because the very similar Model, "Penrose Tiles - 13 skinny Rhombs" I've also ordered, seems to have caused no trouble in the Strong & Flexible Material.
