Wake up early, Yawn... Make Tea. Make something new to play with... Print it...
Give to daughter when she first wakes up.
I can't even imagine what this world looks like to our kids.
I had a ton of these "Bucky Balls" on the fridge holding up sad expired coupons and a few coloring book pages.
Suddenly an idea hit. Use them to connect things!
Practice this new idea while having fun is always time for a new toy invention.
This time I searched thingiverse before I released. There was something that used the Bucky Balls, but ya I still wanted to release my idea/version. I felt it was pretty different anyway.
Ages 3+ up / use best judgement + Swallowing a magnet can kill you!
So search "bucky balls" in google.
Squeeze ball into holder using flat pressing tool of some nature, They should float inside the bubble.
I cut the top layer off each bubble for better connection while still getting that nice bubble taper in the print.
The 45 degree tris are pretty useless in the main building of things but still fun so I left them into the set.
