Did you know President Obama recently followed in the footsteps of 3dprintworks Last week a 3D bust of Barack Obama was unveiled at the White House Maker Faire after he was scanned and printed by the Smithsonian in America. From George Washington to Abraham Lincoln, the National Portrait Gallery already boasts portraits of the forty-three Presidents preceding President Obama.
Here at 3D Print Works we have built our own Rostock Delta 3D printer and thought it would be exciting to share one of the first things we have printed using it. We used PLA filament to print a 220mm high lampshade. So sit back, enjoy and let there be light…
Taking “me” to a whole new dimension with this 3D printed “Mini Me”. I had a 3D scan of myself done last November at the 3D Print Show in London. When the STL file arrived, I couldn’t wait to get it on the printer. It is quite spooky to see yourself emerge from the feet up on a Makerbot.
Our recent 3D print challenge was to build a Rostock 3D Delta Printer. The Rostock 3D printer was designed and built by Johann C. Rocholl in 2012 and has a variety of different designs built around it like the Kossel, Rostock mini, Rostock MAX, Rostock-Montpellier, Rostock Prisma, Delta-Pi, Cerberus, cOssel, Cherry Pi and ProStock. We decided to build this particular model because it was much lesser known.
We are passionate about 3D printing and hope we can incite the passion in you, too. When I am asked why, a myriad of ideas pop into my head – so many it is difficult to be clear. So I have narrowed the list to 3!
