    Took me forever to do this. And it is still rougher than I would have liked.   3D concept rendering:   Finished piece:    

    Bath interferometers.  I have made about 20 of these for people who use them to test their telescope mirrors.  They are amazingly accurate and can do better than a $40,000 Zygo PSI optical tester.  Th

    I just finished this. It was a multi-part print for ease of painting. Some of it I am not sure what happened...but hey, it is purty....And, I am unanimous in that ? Test Render Parts

    OK, So as I gain steam on getting things done, this is a concept piece as well as a test model I made to try out painting techniques.

    I downloaded the Mondoshawan model (no way to improve on it and a big "Fifth Element" Geek and then made the base for it to sit on.

    Of course, I dropped it and broke a few of the spiny things on top, but it was a test and that is ok. Still clumsy.......

    Test Render/Design for 15.5" model total:

    Actual Painted small test model.....dropped and damaged, but what better to test painting on?

    That is incredible work on all of these pieces.

    For a lot of people, a 3D printer is a great way to get something made,  but this is a whole other level. 

    It's like comparing someone who plays a piano competently to an artist who just brings it to life. There are nuances that just make all the difference.

     

    Inspiring.

    Thank you kind sir ? Honestly, the UM3E and S5 really bring out the best in that I do not worry about a lot of other things that others have to worry about.

     

    But starting out as a traditional artist, then branching into CG and then 3D CG, I always wanted to hold in my hand what was in my head ?

    And, my giant sized Mondoshawan is finally finished.

    Noglass.thumb.jpg.9373ba853eae16fa028ca8ac30171afa.jpg

    And all closed up in his case. That is a 2 Euro coin for size comparison. It is a tad larger than a US Quarter.

    Time to take a break.....I forgot to post he proper credits. The Mondoshawan model came from Thingiverse.

     

    The base I designed. The model is a great one. Well made and very, very detailed.

    Unfortunately, I have been so busy with printing and designing, that I have not cleared off a space for basic soldering. And, that means I have about ten fractal lamps to finish with the hardware and bases.....BTW, the Wave is a fractal I bent all out of shape and I think I am going to reprint it in a PETG to see if it can be more crystalline. Coming eventually....LOL.....That includes things like the Nautilus King, and other crazy stuff.

     

     

    Sigh....Pinky and the Brain when a young'un......I am so old!! LOL

    It is Dupli-Color Metal Cast Anodized Colors.

     

    They do a great job and a touch of Krylon original Chrome and Gold.....

     

    oh...gone over with a brush in acrylic washes.

    This is my next print....who knows how it will turn out.....

     

    original image and my 3D realisation. Ive done a few of these but this was my childhood fave.....I still have the book. Iain McCaig the guy who did the artwork, also worked on Starwars. He is an amazing artist, much respect! still gotta rotate the head a bit but ill try that last due to drawing with symmetry. I dont mind printing this one multiple times. Its so cool.

    In the meantime here is a copper plated bobble head. Not glued yet. but im happy with it. the base has a nice weight to it too. I double plated it due to my wires being frayed first time round and not enough voltage was going through! secong time worked better. Even after polishing compounds simply chucking it back in the tank with a re-plate over the bad areas worked just fine! My other plate is in a state of ruin, but it might just add to the look as the 2 plate attempts are poor and overlapping and crumbling off. looks kinda cool though! with a polish and patina, might just look epic after!

    Heres the messed up one.....not given up on it yet. This is what happens when you get casual and try oversize plates with no preping what so ever. Everything need to be perfect for plating. If not this will happen very often....but think of how cool a blue patina on this will be!!!

    Trouble is a blue patina is hardcore compared to a green one, it just keeps going untill it eats all the copper! I'll need a way thicker coat for the blue!!!

     

    Ill may do that today, its been lying about on one of my shelves for so long now, I have a few large ones, I may actually do the giger one today thats been lying around for months after the initial failure, I was meant to send that to a friend weeks ago! I have two so I'll keep one and he can have the other!
