Helicone

Post by jsc » Sat Jul 15, 2017 4:17 am

I saw some online videos of an "interactive sculpture" (executive desk toy) called a Helicone, and decided I wanted to try to make one. It turned out great! The brown parts are because I ran out of black and had to reprint two slices that broke.

On an unrelated note, if you leave eSun PLA+ out for months, it gets incredibly brittle....
