Mandelbrot turned into a wave

Recommended Posts

Now that I can produce shorter term prints and long term prints I am getting more done. This is a Mandelbrot I converted from a 2D image I made to work as a heightfield map inot a 3D object using Cura's open image dialogue. Honestly, it is a great way to bring heightfield type of maps in to make geometry based off that.

This was the small prototype I made:

Then, this is the full size master model. It was printed hollow to allow light to pass through it the way it would through water.

But still works from other angles.

Painted with Duplicolor paints and fingernail polish. The front of both sets of lettering are color changing based on angle of viewing. The camera somehow negates the effect to a degree.... :(

Nice.  maybe you can bring this print (or a similar small print) to the Netherlands to show everyone as we tour though Ultimaker together (yes, kman and I will be in Netherlands in a few weeks).
