Product Description
Ok, so this is my latest crazy idea. If I did my calculations right, it should print, and possibly work better because the through holes will be smaller. So how it works. Yet again if my calculations are correct, the holes (2mm in diameter) should be able to lift water using capillary action .5 inches. The body is 1/4inch and each tube extends 1/16inch making a total of 3/8ths of an inch. So if you place the block, legs down, in a puddle of water over 1/32nd inches deep it should draw the water up. Then to break the surface tension there are groves in the tops of the blocks. Hopefully causing the water to spill out. It is designed to have the blocks stacked turning each block 180 degrees. You should theoretically be able to stack them as high as you want, and the water should keep flowing. All the way to the top. Once you get it up there it's your choice what to do with it.
