If people do know what 3D printing is they often think that all the machines are good for are for printing trinkets like little whistles, working wrenches or paper weights. But a Designeer at Makerbot has made available on Thingiverse all the parts you need to print your own Turtle Shell Racer!

Not convinced? I’d like to see you sculpting a Turtle Shell Racer out of block of wood!
