These crystals were inspired by mineral formations found in nature. They were printed with 3 shells and 0 infill with translucent filament to give them a gem-like sparkle.

Wahoooo! These crystals are great. Thank you team MakerBot!

I don't see the translucent filament in the Makerbot store so that's a little disappointing. When will we be able to get some?

ABS is naturally white-ish, while PLA is naturally a sort of golden translucent colour. That makes it pretty much impossible to get good-looking translucency on ABS.

It has been there for two days now?

Now I see it. PLA not ABS. You would think they would do something on the makerbot store under the filament section to draw attention to it.

We need more minerals!

Seems like these should be customizer ready. I do like me some crystals.

I thought the same thing. I'm thinking along the lines of cylinder($fn=6) using http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:135408http://www.thingiverse.com/thi....
