This one is a generator for some kind of 'Dragon/Alien Eggs' that can be used as a container for small pieces.
This is one of many experiments based in Phyllotaxis algorithms. Eventually i'll publish one or two more interesting things related to this.
This is a customizable figure. Play with the Customizer and find a nice one.
Every customization produces 4 files:
- Complete sphere
- Upper semisphere
- Lower semisphere
- Screw to join the semispheres
Print the two semispheres and the screw and you'll get the container.
Also the semispheres are great for a planter.
Use the complete sphere as you wish. You can throw a dragon inside while printing and get a real dragon egg. Wuhuu!
I encourage you to download and modify the OpenScad code. The Customizer made for this one just modify some parameters but dealing with code you can get many variations.
This one uses the Poor Mans Screw Library (sigthly modificated) for the screw and nuts used. ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8796 )
Also used this nice dragon of bs3: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1469139 in pictures.
Hope you enjoy this one!
