    A masterpiece of engineering!

    I'm tempted to print it to understand how it works.

    With chocolates inside it would make a great present....

    Indeed! If you watch the YouTube video on thingiverse he has an assembly video so you can see all the workings. Also the container itself is a tad small so not sure how much chocolate you would get in there!

    So what were your settings with the nGen and your thoughts about how well it prints? I have a roll and would like to try it out soon.

    @eca it suffers from a bit more warping when printing so make sure bed is hot at 85c with a bit of gluestick. Also don't ever use a raft, never been able to remove one and when you try material is very brittle and will snap and create a mess and fly everywhere. Apart from those two issues it prints very well and no other problems, parts are solid and can be sanded without discolouration. The colours are all bright and glossy. I have 4 rolls to get through :) silver/purple/dark blue/pink if you want to see any other samples. I might also have a box of samples as well
