It looks good, Thomas. I had to look up inselbergs... It's a fitting
description.

I've always wanted to find a way to add overhangs cutting into the surfaces of
such structures, but no solution is easy. Even when using isosurfaces, the
function always extends upward and not outward. I've got an idea how overhangs
and grooves could be accomplished, but it is very expensive, time-wise.
