Helmet Printer Error

I forgot I had these pictures!

Back during the printing of the helmet the printer errored and left a deep triangular gap on each tube:

To fix this I filled in the holes with bondo and had to re-shape the tubes. It was such a pain, but now you can’t even tell!

The error was caused by having faces inside the model (which from everything I’ve read is supposed to be safe to do), and the printer apparently tried to make the tube hollow in that one part. Won’t be making that mistake again!
