Design of the Week: Voronoi Yoda

Design of the Week: Voronoi Yoda
This week’s selection goes to 3D artist Dzingof, whose 3D Voronoi Yoda caught our eye. 
 
It’s a Yoda, definitely, but with a twist: it’s composed of an incredibly complex interior shape. 
 
The secret to this design is its voronoi, which is the method of generating the fill. According to Wikipedia, voronoi is: 
 
a way of dividing space into a number of regions. A set of points (called seeds, sites, or generators) is specified beforehand and for each seed there will be a corresponding region consisting of all points closer to that seed than to any other. The regions are called Voronoi cells.
 
Design of the Week: Voronoi Yoda
That’s what Dzingof did in this design, except that he “filled” a regular Yoda shape with the voronoi pattern, resulting in this amazing work. Not only does it look good, but it also doubles as a pencil holder. 
 
Here’s the best part: you can download this model at no charge from Thingiverse. It should be printable on most personal 3D printers.
