“They’re managing all the evil little shit so we don’t have to.” (Docotorow 309) As the quarter comes to a close we are all figuring out how our projects shaped us.  Although some projects are not finished printing their are many who do not care whether it is printed.  As I myself have not figured

Dimensions: 35mm, 68mm and 83mm Print Time: 55 Minutes Material Use: About 11g I decided to design an object that I believe is representative of my Grandfather and his battle with prostate cancer.  My idea was to originally create many edible objects that I would design to represent a person and then watch them basically
