Einstein sculpture

Einstein sculpture 285 x 224 x 280 mm,

Printed on a 3Dprinterlab.org standard Prusa i3 (200 X 200 Y 200 Z).
Split the model into 5 parts and printed them with 2% infill. After printing filled the parts with plaster and glued them together with epoxy and superglue. Primed the model with zinc primer, sanded, primed a second time. Sanded again and filled gaps with epoxy.
And again sanding.
Painted the model with hammer effect gold colored paint.

Nefertiti full size


Nefertiti model inspired by the blog post and Youtube video from RichRep (Richard Horne)http://richrap.blogspot.nl/2016/03/3d-printing-and-finishing-nefertiti.html

The model is printed in PLA, weighs 9.7 kilo and 50 centimeter high.

I had to cut the model into 11 pieces so it fitted my 3dprinterlab.org standard Prusa i3 (200 X 200 Y 220 Z build space), printed with a 0.4 mm nozzle.

After printing the parts I filled them with plaster and glued them together with epoxy. Then I sanded down the joint and gave it a coat of Zinc primer and sanded down the model very lightly to preserve the 3d printer artifacts. Finally I gave the model 3 coats of golden spray paint.

Nefertiti small try-out

Started to print Nefertiti on actual size. First I printed a small version to check the model.
