Hi is there an option to get the LED base and 3d print bundles with the sphere? Do I need to add it separately? Thanks

Hey, I'm a long time fan of your work and hope to be there again for your next projects! As I wanted to order, I'm really surprised by the shipping cost. I live in the middle of Europe (Switzerland) and I ordered the Wall Light Wide - Medium. The shipping costs are 44 € which...

I was wondering about what the power source of the wall light is? Do you need to plug it in, does it have a rechargeable battery or do you need to buy batteries? Couldn't find the info on the page, so thanks for helping out :)

How are the wall designs meant to be mounted? They seem quite heavy to hang from something basic like a nail so I was wondering what kind of mounting solution they come with.

First time backing this company and I find no information about the subject, what kind of base is included if I back one of the spheres? Do they come with a base or is it required of me to add a LED-base as an add-on?

About the wall lights, specifically, how are they actually constructed, is it a backlit block of glass with a black "mask" or is it micro cracks lasered into the glass similar to the spheres? Most of the images seem to be computer renderings and the ones that look like they mi...

For now I've backed at the 10% discount level because what I really want isn't on offer. The project page shows a smaller wall light with the distortion image but this is not on offer. What I would REALLY like is the distortion image in an 8cm sphere. And of course I realise t...

This will be the fifth globe fund-raiser I've backed. In the past I could buy multiples on behalf of friends. This facility wasn't available this time. Is it possible to add that option?

Hi I chose the Early Bird pledge only - not sure, if that's correct. (After choosing this pledge I could not choose the Sphere itself as an add-on.) Thanks Daniel

Hi I have backed all of your sphere projects thus far. I was a bit confused about how the early bird €1 pledge worked with the black hole project. I assume you back the €1 and then add a sphere for €69. Then later, I can designate the sphere as a black hole, or add further i...

Hi, I've backed before, love the milky way and constellations spheres, and look forward to getting the solar system and black hole spheres! Curious for this one though, does a USB cable come with the LED base or does the cable need to be ordered separately? Thanks!

Just wanted to make sure the Early Bird discount backing works the way I think - is it okay if I pledge only the 1€ now, and then after the campaign is over I decide what it is that I actually want from the campaign, and add them in the pledge manager? Or do I need to decide w...

The non early bird pledge for a Black Hole Sphere states that we can choose between the Black Hole and the previous motifs. If I pledge for the early bird with the Goodie Bag, can I also choose a different sphere than the Black Hole one?
