*Update - I added a mold for making sandcastles and pictures of the 3D print. Printed in ABS with .3mm layers.

In a tribute to Douglas Adams and his absurdist mathematics I have created something not entirely unlike a sandcastle. This castle contains both the answer and the question to life, the universe, and everything. For example there are 6x9 rows of towers with a total number of 42. The towers are spaced .42 inches apart. The points on the top tower are 42 degrees. There are many more examples hidden in this model but I won't give them all away. Plus this model also doles out reassuring advice like "carry a towel" and "don't panic". With this knowledge you too can be a hoopy frood. This one is for everyone else that misses Douglas, if you don't know who he is you should find out. #Buildacastle
