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.

Liver Shell
Design should be of a liver shell. It should be an anatomically accurate model that can be printed if needed to. The inside should be hallow and the liver should include a hole on top where the hyper-vein would normally be and a hole on bottom where the vein would leave. The liver shell should be a 2 piece design that can be clicked/ screwed together to symmetrically put together the 2 halves. http://www.exchange3d.com/3D-Model-of-Liver-Anatomy/prod_28235.html#preview A more simplified version of this will be perfect.
