3D frustrations

So I was hoping by this point in time I’d have a 3D print of MOSI to show to y’all and make a video about, but I don’t. After 3 failed attempts to print it, and making at least 20 separate modifications to the structure, this was the best result.

You can see that the backside of the IMAX dome has collapsed, and upon closer inspection I noticed that the side of the dome also was disconnecting from itself. At this point I’m looking at alternatives to shapeway’s colored sandstone, as it has proven to be far too delicate and too expensive to print with all the proper supports that would be necessary.
