Day 13 - LEGO marble run (chapter 3)

Picking up from where we left off on Day 8, we made some curved LEGO marble run pieces (the translucent blue pieces in the picture).

STL file: http://www.geekhaus.com/makerhome/day13_legomarble.stl

Settings: MakerWare special slicing profile described in Day 8 of this blog, about 23 minutes per curved piece.

Technical notes: These curved models have two base pieces that have to fit into an existing LEGO structure, so there is a lot less room for error.  Depending on your printer you may want to rescale this piece a bit.
