  1. Does anyone find it suspicious that the printed model somehow has grown a different handle than the one the scanned? I appreciate the need for "here is one we prepared earlier" but this needs a disclaimer.

  2. Also, scanning just the exterior of an assembled wrench would not reproduce the jaw opening mechanism.

  3. Pay no attention to the bytes hidden behind the curtain of proprietary secrets.

  4. Printing in space may be not that fuel efficient, as you’d have to accelerate with 1G while printing, or does this work in the (powder) cloud, too?
