How is your idea innovative?

The medical device imdustry uses a similar manufacturing process to make precision heart value rings from graphite carbon rings.

What inspired this idea?

The art of using round sand material in the fracking industry to fill cracks around odd shape voids. Or spilling a box of Trix cereal, the ball shapes flow like liquid, with or without milk!
