I really like the different looks on this one depending on the axis or side you are looking at.

Modeled/Rendered in Solidworks

Inspired by the work of George Hart:

That looks great and it's not so expensive either - which is good. Can you paint on that stuff it's made of?

Yeah. I know some of the materials allow you to do that. Some people stain or die them as well. Here's a link of someone who spray painted his: [link]

The real trick is getting the model exported as a "water tight" mesh with out naked edges or duplicate faces etc... I'm still figuring it out. I have a couple models I'm re-doing because there are problems with them. I don't know how you could export a POV file to a mesh, but alot of people use Blender and TopMod

They can even do Stainless and glass (more expensive). Also full color with a sandstone material using a UV texture map. I'm still trying to figure out how to do that... You will have to be carefull with the wall thicknesses and brittleness of the material.

I know this is something you might be interested in checking out...
