    I love practical prints and this video shows a great one! I especially appreciate his process of showing what did and didn't work for designing the part. The way he took a pic and outlined it in photoshop / illustrator is exactly what I did for this project...

    @The Hat will probably appreciate this since he's an expert at openScad ;) The "customizer" feature on a lot of models on thingiverse has been really cool, fun, and helpful to use... but unfortunately is, and has often been broken. I had NO idea that I could download the scad files, and then...
