Gyro the Cube (L) 3d printed SciFi Miniatures White Strong & Flexi
White Strong & Flexi
  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.

    $75.00

Accused of being fake, witchcraft and simply impossible..
This kinetic sculpture is inspired by the unlimited freedom of 3d printing,
it wobbles and turns with a slight movement of the hand.
Give it a good spin and it moves in erratic and wild ways.

This is the 7.5cm / 3" version, see the Gyro the Forms section for other shapes and sizes.

Instructions
It is composed of four concentric cubes, each one spinning around a different axis.
The model needs some minor assembly:
Each inner cube has two knobs which need to be placed into the corresponding clamps in the parent cube. It's easiest to start with the inner most and continue outward.
And then... spin it away !

Corner stand for this 7.5cm model here.

Notes
Be careful with a cube this size, fingers may get pinched if handled carelesly.
It is not a toy for children!
Also please be careful with (the assembly of) the Alumide version as this material is less flexible/robust than the Strong & Flexible materials.
