Our shiny new 3D Printer has just printed its first actual thing:
It’s a rabbit. Now we know how it’s done, we can make hundreds of them. We can turn on the apocalyptic-rabbit-making-machine and leave the building.
The quality is pretty good – .2mm… which gives a very light texture – bit jaggy on the near-horizontal curves, but this could be cleaned up with a bit of a light sanding… and to be fair, it’s fairly unusual for any digital fabrication machine to make something that doesn’t have the odd bit of post-production. I can see this machine running flat out – it’s probably really good for making jewelery – for molds etc… massively speeding up various prototyping, and possibly allowing the makerage of things that would otherwise be incredibly difficult.
Which is from here, where there are quite a lot of examples of Voronoi stuff.
I like a bit of Voronoi me. Check out this shelf
You want one of those? We’ve got a machine that can make it.
Or create your own unique design… it’ll sit there whirring away while you watch… and then you go home with a work of art that is not for sale, anywhere else on the planet. Because you made it yourself.
