LEGO Techniques - Bent out of Shape

As with most any thin piece of rigid plastic, bending can happen.  The thinner the piece, the tighter the bend before it stresses.  So it should come as no surprise that a bar or axle will bend more than, say, a 2x10 brick.  But plastic also has memory.  In other words, make that face for too long and it will stick.

I got a wild imaginative hair with the Ninjago spinner arena that I found a couple of weeks ago.  What if I turned a couple of the 45° Technic axle connectors on this big floppy thing?  It continued around until I had a nice organic 3D shape.  I think in Geometry terms it's roughly a saddle.  Euclidean space, baby!
