Step 2: 3D Print

I 3D printed the part on an Objet printer (the grand prize in the Make It Real Challenge!) and fit a straw on it to make sure it was the right size (see the image above).  The fit was good; secure, but easy pulled apart.  However, I decided that the size of the connector was a little too large and decided to go back to the drawing board (AutoCAD) before printing more.  Stay tuned for more updates.
