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. 

To make the cone print 

1 of cone 0 lower 

1 of cone 0 upper 

2 each of all other pieces 

(18 pieces in total)

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.
