Non-round spheres by damienb Mar 19, 2013

Description

One more Reuleaux polygons related Thing! These solids called spheroforms have a constant diameter even if they have ridges! Roll them under a book, it will stay horizontal like if it was on 'real' sphere.

Hi, I printed the non-sphere ones. Thanks for the new files!
Just uploaded a Zip with all the shells as separate STL files.
Hope that helps!
Cheers
That would be awesome. Thanks so much!

Instructions

This is an extension to 3D of the reuleaux polygons (see thingiverse.com/thing:62044 and thingiverse.com/thing:61275).

Like the previous things, I've put a tutorial on how to build them with Inventor and in a parametric way with a Matlab script in wp.me/p3gI7M-2j . There is also a video of them in action.

Hi, could you upload the solids as separate files, or arranged in a square? They won't fit my printer this way. Thanks!
Sure, I probably won't be able to do it tonight, but I will do it tomorrow.
I'll write you a mail when it's done.
Cheers

I have re-uploaded the STL so the geometry is in mm. I should have checked Inventor default export configuration...
