Print. While/if the balls are still attached to the race trim off any bumps etc with a scalpel then insert thin blade between balls to separate. (sounds painful)

<p>What did you print this on? Can it be done on FDM machine like a Makerbot or does it need to be done on an SLS machine like Shapeways uses?</p>

<p>I printed it on my reprap Prusa Mendel, .5mm nozzle with .4mm layer.</p>
