Little plastic things make me happy

My first order from Shapeways 3d printing has arrived. These are some of the bins, which will go out to model railway magazines to be reviewed. There’s another batch that I’m going to clean and test paint.
Only one problem so far- the second sprue of bins on poles broke off at the base of the poles. There seems to be a weak spot, possibly accentuated by the model’s orientation when it was printed.
