This is a simple demo object. It has gears on shafts inside a shell and would require internal support structures that would be pretty difficult to remove without support that dissolves.

Also works with dissolvable HIPS filament supporting ABS. See: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tbuser/8522775217/in/photostream
