This was a great first print for our Makerbot. Plus, the tweezers are moderately useful to grab the extruded plastic before a print.

We also used the black ABS on white foam core, and it let us see exactly where we were having problems.

Mine had duplicated verts? Yipe! I'll have to take a look at Blender's export process...

The rationale for the splayed tongs was that you'd have a larger "parallel gripping surface" to work with. However, design tweaks that make them more useful are awesome, pretty much by definition.

yeah, i think the tweezers were one of your early uploads. its cool though, very simple stuff... it is actually a good model to practice on for fixing errors. the non-manifold stuff is pretty easy to spot and can be easily fixed.
