So to continue the rave about my newly acquired Prusa Mini 3d printer here are a couple more images:
This first image shows a 3d printed armature next to an armature that has been skinned with wood putty. I'm new to working with this wood putty...my jury is still out. I was going to use Sculpy but had just obtained this water-based wood putty and thought that I would give it a try. It is sturdy and can be easily carved with a dental tool. Note the 3d printed ear. I'll not be painting this for another month or so.
These tennis shoes are about 1-3/4 inches long. I love the lace detail. Obviously, I have a bit of clean up to do around the ankle areas.
The automata that I am creating right now is called Auger Lift. A biped will be pedaling, which in turn will turn a 15" long auger, which will raise marbles to the top so that they can roll down.
What is on your bench?
