    Thanks! I updated the description for the model :)

    Really cool! But which CAD software did you use, and how did you get the nice even spherical design? I couldn't find it in the description.

    This is a great classic ornament! reminiscent of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:191925 and http://www.shapeways.com/model/111366/snowflake-6-ball-ornament.html
