Rome Was Built In A Bit More Than A Day And A Half: 3D Printed Colosseum.

Hello World! In yesterday's post, I showed you the beginning of the Rome Colosseum being printed. It started printing Thursday evening at 7:15, and was done today (Saturday) around 10:30am. So, a bit more than a day and a half.

Here it is still in progress yesterday at about 4:00p.m. It's pretty cool to see the layers as they build up....slowly. ↓

It is so cute, I can't handle it.

It still has to be cleaned up a bit. It has a lot of hairy bits stuck in the arches.

But overall, for our printer, I think it did a great job. 

I told Jason we should just dunk it in a bucket of paint. He said, "Oh no. You have to paint inside each one of those tiny little arches." My brain hurts just thinking about it. 

Up next. Can you guess? ↓

  1. So amazingly detailed! Is your next one going to be . . . Stonehenge?

  2. Yep. Stonehenge, but it didn't come out very well. I'll post a picture soon.

  3. I wasn't sure about it, but the layout looked familiar. Eight years ago I visited Stonehenge and was able to participate in a Druid ritual among the stones themselves, so I'm familiar with how they're arranged.
