About this Product

Snow is only good with a compression load. Igloos must therefore be made from an inverted catenary curve shape to be strong. This is a small example of the correct shape, but with thinner than useful walls to save cost. 'White Strong & Flexible' looks so much like snow when printed it seems first nature to make snow sculptures with it.

Didn't do much but spin it as a volume of revolution following the necessary curve. The walls are about as thin as permitted. Strong white reminds me of snow sculptures, so first nature to think of things built from snow.

Did you adjust the height to minimize surface/volume?
