Know you can 3d print yours

No assemble required

Prints Standing Up

Print more sections to make it longer

The more you play with it the better it works.

Play with your printing settings and the "thingOne" and "thingTwo" pieces until your prints move freely, reduce the extruder multiplicator to makes hinges move easily (mine was at 87% on this print) use 0% infill.

After Printing, cut the small "supports" that connect the "blocks" to each other. Swing free moving back and forward each hinge, and work your way trough the hole piece.
