After seeing Allan's "*sta" post on the Thingiverse blog[1], I couldn't help but actually make the "star-sta" a reality.

This is technically a derivative of yzorg's Gangsta[2], but since I haven't actually printed it, I don't feel right clicking "I Made One".

Thanks to tbuser for his 2D to 3D tutorial[3] which has the right pstoedit voodoo required to export things sanely from Inkscape to OpenSCAD.

Thanks to Inkscape for having a Star tool.

Thanks to MCAD for the oval generation code.[4]

Thanks to OpenSCAD for making ridiculous things like this possible.

Thanks to cibomahto for creating this mash-up madness.
