I really like this idea! I might have to give that a try in the near future...

Several people suggested to me that this would make a perfect bike handlebar grip.

Very beautiful! My favourite print so far (I printed the low-res version).

Why such a big file size?

I made a derivative with 90% poly reduction so its down to ~4Mo as well: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

This is really cool looking, but I was a little disappointed that there isn't a parametric file we can use... I see you used 3D Studio Max so it wouldn't help me anyway, but typically when I see something on here that's got parametric in the name, I assume its got source files to let me modify the parameters. Seems like uploading the source file would at least be sensible even if not everyone has 3D Studio Max.

Also, yeah the STL really is too large. I uploaded a 45mb STL one time and people complained. When I re-exported it as a 5mb STL I opened up the file and noticed there really wasn't a noticeable drop in detail.

181 mb?

this is too big, please save binary and/or simplify it

Should I use a support?

MCompeau on Apr 14, 2012 said:

Nope, not necessary.

fredini on Apr 13, 2012 said:

Nice! I'm curious what tool you modeled this in?

MCompeau on Apr 14, 2012 said:

I usually use Rhino/Grasshopper for this sort of thing, but in this case I used 3D Studio Max.
