# Mathematical Object with 6 openings

A mathematically generated object (thanks to MathMod). Perhaps you could put your pens in it, or even a dried flower or two. Or you could just leave on your desk as a conversation starter (or stopper).

The gray image is from MeshLab. The green image is from Cura, showing that GCODE file is ready to save. I don't have Sinterit Lisa software to check it for that platform, but it looks good to go.

Just in case you are really interested, the formula is:

-if((x^10+y^10+z^10<3*(3.5^10)),(cos(x)+cos(y)+cos(z))*((cos(x+sin(x)/(2*sqrt(sin(x)^2+sin(y)^2+sin(z)^2)))+cos(y+sin(y)/(2*sqrt(sin(x)^2+sin(y)^2+sin(z)^2)))+cos(z+sin(z)/(2*sqrt(sin(x)^2+sin(y)^2+sin(z)^2))))),(x^10+y^10+z^10-3*(3.5^10)))

(Yes, I knew you were not really that interested).

Generated for the Sinterit Lisa competition.

I have not even contemplated printing this on my filament machines. I have used Cura to resize the object to be about 70mm across, and Cura did slice it. So it is technically printable, but support??
