70 piece vault

The vault is finally entirely cut up! 

We now want to 3D print a scale model of this block assembly. Because we could only get one overnight printing session on the machine, we needed to fit the entire cut-up vault into one 3D printer batch (8in x 10in x 8in). This results in a scale model of approximately one foot squared. Things had to move fast to be ready to print, so no time left for nice packing… Enjoy my packing chaos!

Ready to print! The estimated printing time for our model was about 7 hours.
