Throne of the Nautilus King Print

Recommended Posts

OK, this took more than a month to get the PVA out of all the tiny areas deep in the model....why? Because it is a very thin shell to allow for LEDs to get in there and create a lamp with. There is even one spot that the PVA would just not come out..... ?  This is the raw print with no paints or anything.

I still have to add the lenses in the glasses and ceegar smoke as well as the other stuff. I have not even printed the base to complete the housing yet.

A month he says... A month... *Bows in utter respect at the master of patience.*

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
