maybe I just don't get it but I printed this as modeled as a demo for school kids and I don't understand how it goes together. Would you please be kind enough to provide some instruction?

The two pieces are glued together (I used Testors cement in the red tube, with PLA). The symmetry isn't quite perfect with the vanes, so you'll have to rotate one of the pieces until you get the best fit. You don't have to glue the full lengths of the vanes at once; glue the outside ends (about a half-inch length) and once it sets (give it plenty of time!) you can apply glue to the seams and fill any gaps for more strength.

I apologize for any inconvenience.
