Make's Description

Amazing print-in-place model! Thanks for the great design and childhood memories :-). It looks gorgeous!

I still have my original from the 1980s and this model at 100% scale is nearly the same size. See photos.

After initial movement, it is both loose and stiff. Pieces must be aligned well for smooth turning. The "ball" shape it tough to maintain since it is somewhat loose and heavy. I may try less infill on my next print. However, I am able to get it into all my favorite shapes!

Thanks for including the "test piece" as well. That gave me a lot more confidence before printing the full model.

P.S. Glimmer on the surface is from my Ultistik build plate. Perfect for the inlay plates.
