Lady Mechanika 3d print

what a 3d printer can realy do!
Hey guys, been a little while since I have posted but thought you would like to see one of our recent prints.
Itís an 8 inch print of "Lady Mechanika" by Joe Benitez that we have painted with a bronze effect.

It was modelled in zbrush by Ioannis karathomas
it really was a challenge to build, pushing what is possible pretty far. The print was built in 16 micron layers in separate parts then reassembled after painting. was very surprised the shoe laces came out!
On the whole I think it came out ok, what do you guys think? Enjoy!

Wow that looks excellent. Much more detail than I would have thought from a printer.
I like to learn.

3D printing have been used for quite a while in engineering industry, like Automotive. By the way, I am an Automotive engineer by trade. (which explain why I almost NEVER made mechanical & automotive 3D art design here! I have enough of these in the day)

Good to see it making into commercial industry. I think we are seeing the future of making action figures & models, if it has not already.

The details are really fine.

How much does it cost to make a 3D print model, for say a 10 cm or about 4 inch figurine?

Also, how solid are the model. It is brittle or similar to typical action figurine?

PKD- in turms of cost, how long is a piece of string. the cost can change dramatically from print to print, volume of part and the dimentions all play a part. that said id say a rough cost for a 10cm tall generic figure you would be looking at around £150, biult in high definition, unpainted.

the resin we biuld in is an accrylic based resin, it can be a little brittle but we have had no problems to date with it, i just wouldnt go throweing the prints down the stairs

Wow that seems expensive Lewis, at least for hobby use. Do the printers themselves give problems, like blocked nozzles?
I like to learn.

yeah i relise that we are a little expensive, however this is a quality printer. i dont think there is a machine out there that can match our level of detail in biulds that dont have any biuld marks (layers etc).

dont realy have any problems with blocked nozzles, machine runs fine most of the time

Thanks. At the moment, its too steep for me.

I was thinking of making caricature figures of my friends as presents.

Maybe if I have commercial purpose, like making base mold for a figurine, for commerial sale.

But I will keep your company in mind, just in case.
