Another toy for cats, a ball with a ball inside that rattles when rolled around.
My cat doesn't like it very much, but it was a nice CAD exercise.

Must be printed with support, I got a perfect result with a minimum angle of 70 degrees, so it only supports the outer and inner balls.
I printed it solid, which makes the outer ball really sturdy.

for some reason when I open this up in makerware, the smaller ball on the inside is not there. Is there a way that I can fix that or do I have to insert my own ball?

I figured it out. I measured one of their other toys and found that it was a bit smaller. So I scaled down this model to 40mm and now they love it!

That's interesting. I might try that!
Though by now mine's probably permanently hooked on the cat food ball ;)

Just printing a smaller one now, looks to be going fine half way through. Mine is a for a kitten so I think smaller will be good.

My cats don't like it either! Why?? It rattles!
