nope... you would need to do that somewhere else. But consider a pyramid or a cone... the topside of the cube could be a hard airprint, unless you use support. And if you use support... you are at the same point like before ;).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
