We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Parametric micro-sculpture featured in the Oct 2012 Wired Magazine feature on Makerbot: http://wired.com/design/2012/09/how-makerbots-replicator2-will-launch-era-of-desktop-manufacturing/
Created using Processing and my own Modelbuilder library (https://github.com/mariuswatz/modelbuilder). The form was produced by revolving a generated profile to produce a surface of revolution and then using the unlekker.modelbuilder.filter.UTransformDeform deformation tool to "bend" the horn-like structure.
Printed successfully on a Replicator 1 using both PLA and ABS. The form is hollowed out to reduce plastic use and hopefully avoid delamination, but the bottom section should nonetheless provide enough surface to stick to HBP.

So what's this mean?
We're sure watz would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
