This thing started out as a "ball outside a cage" with the ball riding on four corner posts but then I realized two would be sufficient. And once again, a twist made it fun.

The holes have enough clearance around the twisting posts that this slides very easily. Just be careful removing the support structure.


I used ReplicatorG on my MakerBot Replicator2 with the Replicator 2 slicing defaults and the following settings with white MB PLA:

Infill = 10%
Layer Height = 0.27

Shells = 2

Feedrate = 40
Travel Feed = 55
Temperature = 220
