Testing an Anti-Shark Cage in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

As a child I was fascinated with sharks: whale sharks, hammerheads, makos, nurse sharks, whitetips, basking sharks and, of course, the mighty white great. I was basically a shark for shark information. I was a remorseless machine that would stop at nothing to feed my hunger for shark-related books, documentaries and movies (especially one particular film set in the fictional town of Amity).

3D Printed Left Shark Controversy


The popularity of the Super Bowl “Left Shark” has reached the 3D printing world. After the now famous appearance of the awkwardly dancing “Left Shark” at this past week’s Super Bowl halftime show, the character has been popping up everywhere. Some enthusiastic 3D modelers have created 3D models of the Left Shark. Looking today, there does not appear to be any left or right sharks on Shapeways, so the legal takedown was evidently successful.

But the question could be whether Left Shark is more like that Hookah, or more like the bear slippers in Animal Fair, Inc.
