Glass String Ball by llewelld Glass String Ball by llewelld
Render of a string ball object made from glass. Object created using Functy and rendered using Blender.

This is my first every render (it still needs a bit of work), created thanks to the excellent instruction of ~Tonyralano.

The object is defined by the following formulae:

(x, y, z) = (40*cos(atan(2*sin(a*10*p)))*cos(2*a*p), 40*cos(atan(2*sin(a*10*p)))*sin(2*a*p), 40*sin(atan(2*sin(a*10*p)))),

radius = 3*((3+sin(4*(p+((1+sin(10*a*p))*8*p))))/4),

(r, g, b) = (1, ((1+sin(4*(p+((1+sin(10*a*p))*8*p))))/2)*0.6, ((1+sin(4*(p+((1+sin(10*a*p))*8*p))))/2)*0.4).

You can also have a physical version of the object printed by Shapeways; and I've uploaded a photo to give an idea about what it looks like for real.

Thanks! I wouldn't have been able to even start without your help and excellent instructions.

It's a first attempt though, so I plan to try some other objects and see how they come out.
