Another monster hunter fanart…TIGREX… this time actually from a client, but I got permission to record the sculpting process. For the timelapse I posed the low poly mesh, so the final image is screen grab from Marmoset toolbag 2, not composited in photoshop like in previous videos.
on previous post I said that I got opportunity to print my T-rex and prawn 3D model. Yesterday, I just got my package from my friend Josaphat Soekahar, and it contain my t-rex and prawn 3D print plus some bonus. They print my T-rex twice, with different material and size.
The size of the first t-rex is pretty small, it’s only has 9.5 cm length (about 3.7 inches) and 5.5 cm height. But the detail is very good. It captures almost all the scales detail from the 3D model. The t-rex teeth is still printed, even its so small. The bad news is, small T-rex lost it’s two arms when in the exhibition, and the legs of the bigger one broken into two parts. I have some plan to fixed it using clay or putty, but, the size is so very small. Maybe I leave the small one as it is, and only fix the bigger one latter.
The second t-rex, bigger one, has 15 cm length (about 6 inches). it has less detail compared to the small one, and it has hollow inside. They separate the body part into 3 pieces. The detail of the scales not really visible because of the contour, my guess maybe they printed this using low resolution setting, to make the process faster. We can see layer-by layer of the printing process on its surface. I think a little glue or putty will fix this.
So the third one is the prawn, it has same size as the small t-rex. It’s 6 cm tall and the details is as good as the t-rex. Its small crab like hand on its chest thickness is less than 1 mm, really fragile. and actually there’s antennae on it’s head, but it can’t be printed since it’s really small.
I guess that’s all for this time. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Last month I contacted by my friend from Klik3D that they need some 3D models to test their new 3D printer. I give them my old model T-rex, and recent one Prawn. They said I don’t need to edit the model, because they need it as soon as possible for exhibition purpose this August, so there’s no hollow inside the models, just a single solid plastic.
Actually I sent them three models, the third one is ‘Mirai’ Tony ver. model, but they said they don’t want to print it because it’s anime stuff, you know, anime’s eyes is flat when it comes to figure, so it will not looks so good for exhibition without eyes texture.
They said they use MakerBot to print this. I still don’t know what size this print is. They planing to give the print to me after they done with exhibition. Really exited to hear that. So far they only give me the photo of the T-rex model. I’ll give better pictures when I’ve received it.
I’m also waiting for my another print from i.materialise Singapore. My design titled ‘Spider Trap’ has been chosen by the jury as the winner of the Best Design in the Open Category.
