3D model description

I honestly have no idea what this should be called. I know it's been done before and I know it's nothing new. I just wanted to finally make one....whatever it is. Plus it's pretty satisfying once you make it, put it together and make a cool ellipse. Works great with PETG or a somewhat flexible filament because it all snaps in place. Also you need to print two sliders, not one. Make sure to put the sliders in their tracks BEFORE you attach the handle to the sliders, otherwise you won't be able to put it together. It's not perfect and it's not beautiful but it's cool and I like it. So if you like it, then go and print it too I guess.

UPDATE I now know it is called a trammel of Archimedes
