3D printing.

This plastic was a wound up coil five hours ago. The shape it took was projected onto 2D computer screens, until now.

Looks great.

And, those inserts are a pretty neat idea! I'm gluing my model together today; if it seems to be wobbly, then I might try to use inserts as fasteners in the future 😎
