Hi there, i just found out about these Gömböc's today i find this shape so cool. I want to make a render preview scene for the render engine im using. Now im trying to rebuild this using blender. How are you guys able to print this looking that good. When i check the *.stl file the quality is that could, its not as smooth as in the image. I get some weird splotches near the edges and not sharp corners. Has the export somehow been decimated very extremely orso?

Printed one and it doesn't seem to work. I can balance it on quite a few faces without it rolling over.

Are there any special printing requirements?

I tried many different sizes and print settings, but the face where the logo is is also another stable point. I think the design simply doesn't work as intended. Looking at the STL, it looks like when it was meshed, the tolerance was too low to produce a smooth curve on the side.
