Sliceform Sphere

Prints (0)


About 25 years ago I met John Sharp and was introduced to Sliceforms. I have made many paper and card sliceforms since, so when I bought a 3D printer they seemed a good thing to make. 

The sphere has five different pieces. You need to print: 

2 of 1.2 sphere 0 

4 of 1.2 sphere 1 

4 of 1.2 sphere 2 

4 of 1.2 sphere 3 

4 of 1.2 sphere 4

Obviously, because of the thickness of the print, the shape does not squash as flat as a paper model would but it is very tactile and makes nice noises. 

See my other sliceforms.
