Tetra Orb
Article © MAIL User: The Mad Mailler

Making a Tetra Orb is fairly simple. A good link size is 14swg 7/16". Find that AR and you're good to go to find whatever link size you want. I used 12swg 1/2" spring steel here (was all i had). It's a bit too small, but it works.

  1. First, make a simple orbital.

  3. Now, add a second orbital, like so:

  5. And then add a third:

  7. Now add 3 rings on the orbitals, like so:

    and a side view:

  9. Looking at it from a side view, put an orbital on where 2 of the newly attached rings touch.

  11. Repeat with another set of touching rings:

  13. And repeat one last time, as shown with the galvy rings:

and that's about it. Enjoy making your Tetra Orbs!
