I learned a bit about 3D printing this past week! The office has a 3D printer in the corner, and it's the kind that just squirts plastic, so you need to add supports to whatever you're printing or it'll droop under its own weight.

And while I thought my logoform from two weeks ago would be pretty well optimized for a 3D print, its actual positive quality seems to be that it's composed of many things I can print flat and then glue together 😅


So if you're thinking of making a 3D model, maybe my logoform project can help you compose your result from relatively simple to print parts! Except for the helices, those need to be, like, cut in half and glued together.
