Bloxen, Weathered by zheng3 Oct 15, 2012

Description

"Every empire crumbles beneath the wheels of time."

--Qie Zi, The Art of Seej


This is a plaster-cast Sidewalk Chalk Bloxen, sculpted with a chisel and scanned with Autodesk 123D Catch.

It's a fully usable Seej bloxen: I edited the scanned mesh to include a pair of mortises on the bottom.

Brilliant! Man, that rules.

Yep, that's right.

Technically step 0 was designing the positive (the basic seej bloxen) and then turning it into a mold in step 1.

Step 5.5 would be adding the mortises on the bottom of the mesh, since I didn't scan those and I wanted it to be compatible with existing bloxen.

I'm waiting for a scan/print solution that will pick up all the little scratches in the plaster model. That will rule.

Do I have this right?

1) Digitally designed as a mold
2) 3D printed
3) Cast into plaster
4) Chiseled
5) Scanned
6) 3D printed

Could be an interesting experiment in generational loss. :)
