This is a Buddha scan I found on Sketchup Warehouse. I really liked the detail and it printed fairly well on my ToM using the MK7. I still don't have the MK7 configured properly as my prints are a little squished. In this case Buddha doesn't mind. In fact he said I should not worry, nor should I be attached to how he looks or be judgmental. Instead I should surrender to the moment and live in the now.


The detail here really shines on the MK7. I haven't tried it on the MK6 yet. I suspect it would look even better with a little acetone.

@Cornwarrior - How did you get your Budai gold like that?!

Actually, it's Budai, the "Laughing Buddha"


"Budai is often conflated with (or simply replaces) the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, in spite of the distinct visual differences in how each has been depicted. In India, Nepal, and throughout southeast Asia, Gautama (who lived during the 6th c. BCE) is commonly depicted as being tall and
slender in appearance. In contrast, in China and those areas to which Chinese cultural influence spread, the depiction of Budai (who lived during the 10th c. CE) is consistently short and round. Both depictions are the idealized results of the religious, cultural and folkloric traditions which evol
ved in the centuries after their respective deaths."

I've always wondered about that. I just figured Siddhartha let himself go.
