The UNI Disc

I had a UNI Disc back in the day. My original is in pretty bad shape so I decided to build one from scratch.

I started by 3D printing the clips and hub, stitched up the fabric and joined it all together with a fiberglass rod for the hoop. I've also been experimenting with recreating the original graphics scaled up a bit.

Thanks Ben, unfortunately the only photos I took were the ones I shared here. Sorry about that, but if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them for you.
