THE MAGNETIC DOT ENCYCLOPEDIA

Giant Ant v01 Like

by: tend2it Follow


Neodymium Magnetic Balls (@167) - Giant Ant v01 ... Components:
(@027) - Head - 24-ball sphere + 1 ball bottom (mandibles) + 2 x 1-ball (on the side top of the head - antenna) ... (@028) - Thorax - 28 balls ... (@046) - Abdomen - 46 balls ... (@066) - Legs - 6 x 11 balls ... This is my most unstable creation to date ... the magnetic fields generated by the legs wanted to warp them out of position and stick together ... gravity also would also cause the legs to stick when adjusting the angle for a shot ... Normal antennas made out of zen balls proved impossible to prevent them from creating a warp field and sticking to something. I tried to fashion antennas out of thin wire and it created the same problem. Pipe cleaners worked but didn't quite look right in scale ...
