One hour and forty-one minutes later I have a half fuse that's not very pretty. The raft is a bunch of edge on strips that the fuse is built on. The bad part is they have to be trimmed off both the inside and the outside!

Just ahead of the wing cutout there's a hole in the flat side of the fuse where the filament was unable to bridge the gap.

I'm already printing another one to see if it comes out better. A lot depends on how well it starts and this one didn't start all that well.

BTW, Despite how bad it looks it still manages to evoke the feel of the HP-8.

Edit: This looks like it has a better start. I'll know in about a hundred minutes!
