A 3D Jungle Gym

So days later, a jungle gym has emerged from my 3D printer. I had to learn a PC program called 3ds Max from Autodesk, a program I have always wanted to try. It is a high-end 3D design program that I am a mere amateur at, but I did get a printable jungle gym design from hours of fiddling with it.

I gave the drilled wood one last try, using the 3D design as a guide. But I still ended up with broken dowels.
Printing took 9.5 hours and had to be watched the whole time.

The result: a bit fragile but should work. Needs to be painted next.
