If you 3D print this, it should be better to do 4 parts (with fixing system for each) : plate, big support, small supports.

Maybe, but I always envisaged it as one piece and didn't think it would be so complicated to make.
This now is beyond my current experience.

If the community can help this simple idea become reality, I will be most appreciative, and of course donate.
Here is the file. Please remember, I have only been playing with FreeCad, and any 3D modeling for that matter, for a few weeks and only watched a handful of videos to learn some methods.
Please be gentle with me! :oops:
The model tree contains some non visible/hidden bodies that I practiced and prepped for trying to make a Boolean cut from the bracket but have been unsuccessful.

Please forgive the crude and quick drawings. Its embarrassing :oops: , but its all I started with.

Other idea (no true dimensions).

What type of 3D printing ?

Done. If JagsSingh wants to, I move it back.

I make resin prints as I don't own an FDM yet.

Anice idea. I am not sure where I would glue to be minimal on that design, but I suppose that it could move freely within the sphere. With this type of design I would need to make it all with transparent resin and it would be bigger in the bauble.

Happy for thread to move if that works better.

Hi everyone.

I'm still getting nowhere quickly with this design, and it is probably a brick wall that I am finding one of the most frustrating creative barriers I have ever had in my life. :(

I not heard back from many people.
So if an expert could clarify something for me - is my concept design actually a difficult part to 3d model? :?:

I am not sure if this post moved got in the end, to get more eyes on it, but is there anyone that can create the part in the original post for a decent fee and a contribution to the project?

Maybe the approach is not so correct.

FreeCAD is complex program and seeing some video surely don't teach so much.

This is due to some facts:

There are many FreeCAD versions, and some video use old versions, and/or are posted mainly to "generate traffic" to be paid for by Youtube.

Not every video is even readable as it depends also on localization, as some menu items are difficult to follow across translations.

Some designs that seems, easy are not very easy at all, as I'm coding very often I will see that a simple "match an angle" or "find a radius" is not easy to get if you maybe start from a Mesh, as Mesh didn't have angles, only facets, and you have to build a "similar thing" using FreeCAD engine to have some real data like radius, curvature and so on.

Some things are better to be digested gradually, like "the ant that wanted to eat an elephant", the only way to success is to "eat it with little bite and many many time".
