Scribe’s stackable whale from drawing to resin casts. You can see how the rough sculpt is laid out initially and then rebuilt to be super-crispy. It’s that second crispy sculpt that gets rapid-prototyped. Then silicone molds are made and, in this case, a bunch of test colors produced in resin.
Prototyping a print of that last thing I posted. I separated the model into a bunch of pieces which print individually, and then assembled them.
This was a quick, low-res print, but it gave me some useful information; the model leans to the side, the tabs between parts need more clearance to fit together well, and the part configuration is really hard to assemble reliably.
The screenshots of Blender are from the viewport with the ambient occlusion enabled - v2.74 rocks!
Bat Boy by Kathie Olivas. The first picture is my digital sculpt, the second is the large rapid-prototype output. The third and fourth pictures are two of Kathie’s hand-painted figures. I love this kind of work, it’s a great blend of technical and artistic inspiration, and Kathie is wonderful to work with.
