3D Reality

It turns out my Cell Frame was a little too big to fit in the 3D Printer.  I tried a variety of configurations, and some were very functional but I wasn't happy with the look.  So I ended up chopping a little material on the outer edges and decided that I could add a Lexan cover if needed.  I think the effect with the cells in place will be pretty cool.

 A little hard to see in this picture, but the print head looks like it came from an InkJet printer.

The process is time intensive as the display shows:  69.29 hours to do two copies.
