As you can see, if you're viewing the original art piece, 3D printing is my new medium. I like new mediums, lots of room to explore where few have been before, and I've just begun. Using the same 3D software that I used to create 3D lenticular images, I can now output real 3D objects. It's like the 1st generation of the Star Trek "replicator". If you can imagine it, you can make it.
This piece you are viewing represents a huge amount of work. For one, it's my largest work at 64 tiles, just the base of each tile takes about 3.5 hours to print, not counting the various parts that are above the base or other parts in other colors. Second, it's the first time I've combined multiple colors on a single tile, much less a sculpted piece. Third and fourth, not only was the planning/design work more difficult and time-consuming, then I built this interpretive website to be able to tell the story to you. I hope you have enjoyed it!
