Eeh I'm awesome. If Google says it then it must be true.
I earned 50 points by sharing my local knowledge on Google and now I've got an official Level 3 Local Guides badge to prove it.

I found one on my Mini Kossel's print bed. Does that count?

Kokichi Sugihara's Ambiguous Cylinder, made real by Thingiverse user MakeEverything, printed on my Kossel Mini and held up to the bathroom mirror. Like it.

Rather proud of this :D My first attempt at using Sculptris – so this parrot was sculpted from a sphere of 'clay'. Now to prime it and spray it gold – My wife fancied a li'l gold parrot to hang from the side of a plant pot and I fancied the challenge.

Written by Genesis (but really Steve Hackett I would have thought) I've aways loved this and so took it upon myself to learn it. Still very much a work in progress – there's not much finesse yet as I'm concentrating furiously on where I'm going next most of the time :-)

Recorded in in one take, with a couple of fluffs edited out.

Heh -- a bit scruffy but the proof-of-concept worked. I'll try printing it larger (which should print better) and more colourful but I'm pleased with this result.

I printed the outer sleeve separately and then slid it over the vase. Printed in PLA on my Kossel Mini.

"And now for something completely different"

Very nicely done.  About the only way you could best this would be to 3d print a clay vase and add the plastic trim later.

I tend to use a small spatula myself, but I guess a ball would do the trick

+Kyle Madruga Sorry not perspective, you get that with one eye, it's the two views -- stereo vision -- which helps the brain sus the illusion.

Mundane but still kinda cool. We've run out of clips in the house again – for bread bags, sugar bags, crisp packets, and all sorts of packets in the kitchen...

...so print some more. These look great and work really well.

+Mark Wheadon Fun! Here's one I designed, not as a "spring" as such, but springiness is definitely key:

Another of my designs – a sweetheart vase. Printed in Rigid.Ink PLA.

This is something I'm attempting to sell through Etsy – happy to let this community know how I get on after a while if there's any interest?

Straightforward uncomplicated food cooked well. A great place to bring the kids, a safe place to bring the Mother In Law if you know what I mean. Relaxed atmosphere.

Fascinating. The tour was excellent and it was all very un-National-Trust, which is a good thing :D Book in advance if you can as they are a small operation.

It's a bit weak, and the Scenic Railway is our if action at the moment.

This could be very naff, dry and boring. But in fact it's none of these things, it's very well done. Well worth a visit.

Excellent brunch, and good value. Portion size is not huge but the quality is high.

Ok but not great, and quite pricey. Their approach to food intolerances could be much improved. You end up having an informal chat with the waiter who lets you know what kind of thing you should maybe avoid. Nowadays I expect it to be annotated on the menu as otherwise making an informed choice is much too much like hard work. The food is ok but I've had much better, and for a lower price.

This is small but, provided you take your time, fascinating.
