Cool story. I am surprised they fit in two large trucks!

I was surprised too, but in real life, they probably would have packaging to protect them during shipment, and would take up way more space. I packed them in pretty tight in the illustration.

Funny story... a customer asked me how many items I could put in one batch, and in the same email, asked what was the largest item that I could print at once.

I showed him this model:

If you take that and extend it... you can print just under HALF A MILLION of these trashcans as a single batch.

But.. the batch will cost you $29,000

Plus $6.25 shipping.
