can you either link or provide the dimensions of the ball please. Thank you I'm making this for my grandfather who suffers from memory lose.

Hi piffel. The ball that this was designed for is 4 mm in diameter (that just happened to be the size of the ball that I scavenged from an old toy). The inner wall spacing is 5 mm, so a slightly larger one might work as well. Best wishes to you!

Please make more / different designs, this one is so addicting to play with. Great job, and good fit.

here's an idea... based on a similar maze we made in school with a CNC milling machine... when the printer prints the floor, change filament colour so the walls are a different colour :D depends what printer you have, mines a wanhao so you can cut the filament at the head and feed a new colour on top... :) so you get a black maze with red walls for example :)

Thanks so much for the comment!
And thanks as well for the 2D to 3D tutorial. It's very handy.

Great job. Thanks for taking the Tic Tac Box Challenge. I created a collection for all the models. http://www.thingiverse.com/DesignMakeTeach/collections/tic-tac-box-challenge

Thanks. I hope the challenge keeps growing, it's a fun one.
I posted the 'interior dimensions' .stl here as one of the files. It's not a perfect fit (used a rectangular prism, should be slightly trapezoidal). If I can optimize the fit, I'll post separately. Others might find it of use to start from.

HAHA!! This is awesome, I've gotta get some tictacs now!
I've seen maze generators on here before, maybe something like that can be created for this. This is cool though!

Thanks for the comments and also the suggestion. I will have to look into the maze generator idea, I haven't seen those before. That would be a great addition.
