Twisted Brick by blincoln Feb 10, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

In a failed attempt to create a copy of a famous Danish building brick, I decided to give it a twist - and voila! A fun set of earrings!
(Or you could say "Screw it!" - so I did)
Update: Added better support for the knobs and fixed a possibly broken STL file.

I can't seem to get the three tubes on the inside printed without significant distortion. Any advice?
Simple twist turned something common and dumb into something GREAT. Really cool idea. I love these.

Instructions

Print at fine resolution, use a sharp object to clean it up. I have printed it with a Replicator 2 at 0.1 mm resolution, 100% infill and 1 shell. Each ear ring took about 45 minutes to print.

SUPER! i like it.
why is this featured? Lego brick, twisted with a hook on it, how is this innovative?
course it's just a funny... twist ;)
What is the point of making a twisted Lego...

Will they fit together?
Just because she can?What is the point of your comment...Will if fit within this discussion?
I made those and people thought they were AWESOME!!!!!
Like a regular LEGO wasn't painful enough to step on. ;)
Thanks for making my day :))
To make a pair, does it make sense to print one normal, and one mirrored?
Absolutely! I have chosen not mirror to so far to show a little more of the reverse side of the brick.
