    I couldn't be happier with my print.

    This is a proof-of-concept model. There are 12 rhombus plates attached by sprues. Once disassembled, these parts can be snapped together to make a variety of structures. Here's the structure that inspired me to design this model.

    The cool thing is that they snap together with c-clips on a pin (think lego hands), which gives the structure a dynamic hinge motion. You can create polyhedra that fold up! I'm using toothpicks as hinge pins in the picture. Let me know what you think.
