HI
Giving it a try.. maybe if the balls were on the bottom (as opposed to mid air float) it would allow for vertical printing of the cage. The idea/design is really cool thank you for making this. Maybe the top and bottom could be customized to diferent polygons (square, pentagon, hexagoen etc).. an octagon version of this (with all 8 columns printed) would rock! Im doing it by printing two parts at the same time just 45 degrees off one versus the other..

It's okay to print this thing vertically - just use support.

Steve

Very cool!
If I could suggest, these might print more cleanly if the ball(s) are printed adjacent to the cage rather than in it. If you print the cage vertically you can just pause the orient, pull the balls off the stage and clean them up, and then drop them into the cage before finishing the print.
Cheers
