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

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

What material will you be using to print this?

CROISSANTERIA DO BAIRRO
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.
Outdoor TV Enclosure
Design an outdoor TV Enclosure for 32" flat screen TV to be used outdoor such as backyard, pool, or cafeteria. - Inside the enclosure will hold flat screen TV with dimension of 30" x 18" x 2" (W x H x D). Dept can be extended if needed. - TV must be safely secure inside the enclosure when not attach to the VESA Wall mount - Must be able to mount with VESA Wall mount standard of 200mm x 200mm - Water resistant but does not need to be completely waterproofed - Have a cooling system, either ventilation for airflow (Fans) or cool down liquid (Freon) - A sound bar will be located in the bottom of the enclosure - Would be nice if the enclosure has feet that can be pushed in or pulled out when place on the ground to keep it balance.

Accent Piece
I have 3D probed/scanned an object that I need to recreate on my CNC router. I'm using Vectric VCarve Pro software- but its limited in it's 3d editing capabilities- Vectric Aspire is what I would need, but do not have the funds to upgrade at this time. So what I need is this object rendered fully in a 3D model (the other half is the same as what was scanned already (mirror image)- AND, the other side of the object has a contour to it. I have yet to probe that side, but would just do a small portion, and that can be extended to create the backside "carve". So I need to do a 2-sided machining of this object. I assume an .stl file or similar would be what I need.
