Ommatid Code and Design Files
A neat feature of github is that you can embed a 3D rendering of a .stl file in a live view that you can rotate and zoom with the mouse. For example:
The .STL files were created for the Stratsys Connex 500 printers at Pier 9 which can print in two kinds of resin: transparent and opaque. So each half of the sphere has two .stl files corresponding to the clear and opaque parts. The bottom half is identical to the top half save for the bottom triangular segment has a 1" diameter hole for the pedestal and three small ventilation holes.
