Hypercube and Hyper-Hyperboloid
It is hard to resist the call to “spin” a hypercube, that shadow of a 4-dimensional cube. The result is appealing – a hyperboloid within a hyperboloid. It is hard to print such a hyper^2 thing so I added a stand for printing and displaying purposes.
The hypercube is created by extruding the six faces of a cube at -45 degrees after adding an offset. The inner cube is then shelled.
The base cube is 50 mm^3. Four versions are provided.

A raft is helpful to improve stability during printing, I think.
