Succesfully printed in Medium size in White Strong & Flexible.
Dyed strong & flexible could and larger sizes available per request.

The original model was created in 2006 for a 3d photo collage.
One of the goals was to create a life-like photograph of non-existent objects.
As, at the time, I was pretty sure this was an impossible to produce object.

Then I discovered shapeways ;-)
So now it was succesfully created in real 3d!

It is solid to not compromise the design and the price difference was marginal.
Medium size, the outer diameter is 8.5cm/3.3 Inch and the tips are 0.7 mm quickly becoming wider.
Which overall makes it quite sturdy.

Basic model is M (8.5cm/3.3 Inch), an L (150%) and XL(200%) version.

Please be careful with unpacking though, it may be slightly tangled in the bubble wrap.
Then again, mine already survived a 1 meter/3 foot drop, however, I do not recommend that ;-)
It should be treated as a delicate decorative object, it is NOT a toy!
