Wobbly Ball

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Make a ball that feels comfortable when held in your hand and does not roll in a straight line because it is not evenly weighted. It should roll to either the left or right when it is rolled.
It should be comfortable to hold. And it needs to be able to be printed on a 3d printer.

#12 Ball 4 by PETER LAKATOS
This version has the core in a cilindrical shape.
I can update any design, perhaps use the outer texture of the first ball on the others. I welcome any suggestions or feedback you may have.

Peter, you referenced "ratings". I don't know what that means, this is my first time on the site.

Jnatzic, yes the outside should be solid.

And for all of you....can this be made with material that is similar to a stress ball?

Thank you all. Your ideas are great. I will decide soon on wobbly ball, and I will need some additional work to design in the near future.

Do you have a preference whether the outside of the ball has openings in it or is solid? Thanks

Could we have some ratings please ?

The ball should be made out of a plastic material, in between soft and hard.

Need a Bakery Kiosk (4x4m^2) design/futuristic/minimalist look, with shape of croissant on the ground. Maybe cork material. Please keep this simple, to have costs and time to make it faster. The kiosk itself is limited to 4x4, the floor can be bigger. It is for a shopping mall. It is a French Chef Bakery/Coffee Shop that serves croissants, chocolate and coffee. Attached are some pictures of the feel we look for. We need the implementation in 3D and 2D measurements to send to the Shopping mall Administration for Approval. THIS PROJECT CAN'T TAKE MORE THAN ONE DAY. IT IS OF EXTREME URGENCY! NO BS.

Industrial Safety Glove Design
TPR (Thermoplastic Rubber) Protection Zones for Work Gloves We are an industrial work glove manufacturer and one of our main products are gloves with TPR moulded zones which are applied to the back of gloves (either sonic/heat or sewn) to provide protection from knocks, bumps, bangs, compressions etc. Gloves are widely used in the offshore Oil and Gas sector along with mining and automotive sectors. The TPR zones are primarily to protect the fingers, knuckles and metacarpals within the hand – see attached image. We have several mould designs already, attached are two samples TPR1 and TPR2 and we are looking at a new mould also attached named Karbonhex which is based on an Hexagonal pattern/design – the inner hexagonal design is okay but the actual outer/outline needs a redesign to also make it more hexagonal…. This is as much about esthetics as functionality!
5 Yr Anniversary Momento
Looking to create a custom momento for my wife for our 5th wedding anniversary. Would like to have this 3d printed and be able to fit on a shelf in our house (little statue or something). In terms of design guidelines, I'm open to many different ideas and don't want to restrict your creativity by narrowing down the scope too much. I was thinking of something that would incorporate our names or potentially the below dates in an artistic way. Some elements that could be incorporated: - May 2, 2009 - Marriage Date (Wife = Ana or Anastasia, my name is Adam) - Feb 12, 2010 - First son, Alex - Dec 21, 2011 - First daughter, Asha - Sep 17, 2013 - Second son, Archer - All of our names start with A. Some other things that my wife likes and/or has some sentimental value: - Hawaii (honeymoon location) - Flowers (specifically orchids, also likes peonies and ranunculus) - Disneyland - Animals (Bison, Koala Bears) - Travel If you need more, let me know...
From 2D to 3D
Please make this old 2D drawing in to 3D drawing - with correct meassures. When it is done, I also need to have a drawing of the same tool - but where the top is blank. Meaning that there is no - thread - so we can cut the thread afterwards. It is attached as the M14 drawing.
