3D Printed Stonehenge, Death Star, Electronic Arts and The Police.

So, yesterday, as you might have guessed, (or at least my one and only loyal follower guessed. hi Debra!) we were printing a 3D Stonehenge. ↓

I would kind of consider this print questionable, because the base turned out so thin and flimsy, even though Jason printed it at 200%. I can't even imagine how it would print much smaller than this. It is already so tiny at 200%. ↓

And another thing, it is so hairy. That's hard to clean up after the filament dries and those little leftover hairs harden.

But, I'll still give painting a go, and I'm sure it will be cute. 

Here are a couple things that I actually painted for those who think I am a complete procrastinator. 😏

The Death Star. ↓

This was printed in pieces, with two halves and a center ring, and it was glued together after I painted it.

By the way, have you seen the new Star Wars movie, Rogue One? We saw it, and I thought it was pretty good. Nowhere near as good as the original trilogy, which were movie perfection, but better than the prequel trilogy, in my humble opinion. 

Back to 3D prints. If you know the video game company, Electronic Arts, you might recall their early days logo: ↓


And here is their current logo, which you might be more familiar with today: ↓

Jason's first 3D design created with the free 3D design program, Tinkercad was an homage to Electronic Arts' original logo with the cube, sphere and cone. Though, when I saw it, I thought of something completely different. So, and I kind of commandeered it, and painted it as an homage to my favorite band, The Police: ↓

Notice the cube, sphere, and cone in the album cover below, and the screenshot from the video of their 1986 version of "Don't Stand So Close to Me", which if we are talking old vs new, that 1986 version just screams 1980s, while the original is timeless. I'm glad they never got around to rerecording anymore of their hits, which was apparently the plan at the time.

So you see? I have painted some things after all. and I will get to the rest of them as soon as I have that dedicated painting space I've been dreaming about....Jason.

  1. Yay! I was right? BOO-YA! And yes, it's pretty hairy. Maybe you can just leave it that way and pass it off as "Halloween Spiderweb Stonehenge." It'll save you a lot of work with the nail scissors!
