About this project

I am a physicist by education, an inventor by application and an engineer when I have to be. But my artistic self has always been trapped in my mind. I can create anything in my head but getting it to paper or canvas or to sculpture has always been a problem.

3-D computer solid modeling and 3-D fused deposition processing now let my imagination become reality. I can dream up those artistic representations and make real three dimension artwork.

The first of these is the Filigree Snowflake. It is three dimensional, very intricate and delicate. Fused deposition processing can create three dimensional objects that could not be manufactured any other way.The fused deposition process has 0.007" resolution. The process deposits a very small bead of material in cross-sectional planes and builds these planes in the third dimensional. 

The CAD creation is a 3-D computer model of the idea.

 

And 3-D fused deposition lets this computer model become reality.

This truly is a three dimensionsal snowflake.

Looking at different views you can see the intricate internal structure.

These are very lightweight and relatively strong.  We can make them in 3” 4” and 5” sizes.

 
 
 

Ideas can now be made in real life.

Thank you for browsing through my project and I hope you pledge.
