    4 nested toroidal dodecahedrons

    Everyone who's handled it has wanted to keep it.

    3 of the layers stuck to each other; I guess my clearances were too small, but they weren't stuck seriously, and I was easily able to "worry" them free. Now all 4 layers can be moved independently.

    I've ordered another 8, to give away for Christmas.

    in which material was it printed?

    It's printed in WSF.
    I have demonstrated the strength of the material to people by dropping it to the floor from full reach; it bounces!

    and now, eight times the madness.

    Some of the vertices stay filed with the nylon powder; I use a toothpick to free it, then give the things a good blast with compressed air.

    20 vertices per dodecahedron, 4 layers per piece, 8 pieces ... 640 vertices to clean out ...
