Giant Fractal looks like Coral for Lamp

Recommended Posts

This is a fractal I cobbled up and made it into a giant hollow shape to light up. I have not made the dolphins yet that are part of it. It is made to be lit internally. The red base will hold the electronics inside and will run Fibre optics through all sorts of parts with different colors. That will be interesting as I have to find the right color combo, but one thing at a time..... The base will not be red when finished. The first photo is regular lighting, after that backlit to show the translucency of material. Thing filled the build plate....Size is my enemy....:(

Oh, I forgot to mention that this was a print that was working while I was in the Netherlands. :) UM3E held up well with no attendance to it. Too forever to get the PVA out of it though. About a month of soaking and I still have two more prints that are clocking in at 6 weeks at this time and still have not got it all out.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
