    What I find interesting – especially in light of the recent Wired article on low-cost injection molding – is that this design appears to me to be something that could, in fact, be injection molded; perhaps with gas assist.

    That leads me to wonder a) what 3D modeling tool she’s using, and b) what her level of expertise is with the tool. I look at this shape and can’t help be see this as something that could use some additional detailing… the kind of detailing that can’t be molded using traditional manufacturing methods.

      To use traditional methods would require ‘tooling up’ and a minimum run wouldn’t it? I guess the approach shown is ‘mass customisation’

      maybe she didnt want more details :) you can see from the many other creations on this website that there’s no problem to print more detailed shapes
