Art project - Tentacle Man for 3D printing
« on: May 27, 2018, 09:56:58 am »



This is a model I have ordered for 3D printing for an art project. I will eventually paint the physical model.
Modelled in Anim8or - rendered in Blender

Cool! Be sure to show us the 3D print when you have it.

I recieved the 3D print today. It's the first time I try this, and I'm very happy with it.
It was quite expensive though, since I hadn't learned to make it hollow when I ordered this.

Next step is to paint it with acrylic paint.

Thanks guys  :)

There is an exhibition here in Denmark next
Easter, where I want to submit a small series of
These kinds of models, painted. My hope
Is that they will get past the commitee that
decides what will be exhibited.

Dont know if Ill ever try to sell them,
since the printing is so expensive that
I would have to charge over 200 dollars for this
One just to cover the expenses.

Maybe I will get my own 3d printer eventually,
that has kind of become a dream of mine  :)

You can save quite a bit of money by scaling it down. For example, for a model 1/3 smaller the volume is less than 30% so it should cost about 30% as much.

True, the prints im ordering are quite large. But then they are easier to paint detailed.

Wow that's a really cool character and the 3D print is nice- I didn't expect it to be that big! Keep up the good work!

I think it's about finished. I call it "Tentacle Human".
