Not sure if this is the right place to post but, I have made this 3x3 design that is light weight, cost effective (hopefully you guys think it is) and smooth.

But I'm going to show you guys some pics and tell me what you think :)

Btw this is a standard 57mm cube.

It looks a bit fragile. Could you increase the size of the central sphere?

I could edit the sphere but I would have to do a TON of stuff to do that, and the size of the sphere is just under 9mm.

I'm also making the design more hollow as we speak :mrgreen:

What I mean is the imaginary sphere the pieces make, if that makes any sense :lol:

To better explain, the center pieces shouldn't be so thick.
