While I have an ideal goal for this project, I encourage any full yam to be reproduced and attached to modify any structure. The clamp fits best around a 3/4" tube and is tightened with #6 screws

well, you've got the idea, I suppose a rutabaga could work- I was impulsive in my specific choice of a yam, but i was interested in the ambiguous form of the yam (or similar organic forms), once printed in another material - its form becomes confused, it could be coal slag, feces, a yam, a stomach, etc. And mounted as appendages to the functional "stool" the definite form and function of each is blurred.

There are 7 .stl files provided that are needed to make the ideal structure. Each yam is made from 3 pieces: a yam bottom, a yam top, and the clip backing. The files includes 1 yam bottom, and 3 matching tops each with a different angled clip. The variety of angled clips give a choice of orientation important if mounting multiples on a straight framework. There is a distorted yam bottom and a distorted yam top. All yam tops use the standard clip backings that print in strips of 5.
Once printed, the two halves of a yam are connected with 3mm rods (welding rods or any 3mm stock) to form a yam. The clip backings are secured to the yam using #6 screws.
