Day 169 - Sliced Menger 1: Starmaker

Today we made a white stand and slice illustrator to accompany the diagonally sliced Level 2 Menger sponge we printed on Day 155.  Don't look at the second picture until you try to guess what the white slice looks like!

My God, it's full of stars!

Settings: MakerWare .2mm/standard on a Replicator 2 with no support and no raft, thanks to owens' great disposable stand that prints with the model (see Day 157).

Technical notes, Kinks flavor: This model Starmaker is named after the first song on the Kinks' concept album Soap Opera.  I can take the most ordinary cube in the world and make it a star!
