Driftwood with Ball
by stevemedwin, published
For one print, I used an oil based paint marker to paint the ball black.
UPDATE: I added a version I printed with black PLA, sanded, spray painted black and then painted the ball with gold. It reminds me of Japanese lacquerware.

Thanks for your comments. I never would have thought to try printing without support so I'm glad it worked for you. I was using Groboto last year when I did this design. It was very easy to do Booleans. Lately I've been using ZBrush for my organic work.
I've successfully printed this without supports - the bottom of the "driftwood" is a little stringy and the bottom of the ball needs to be sanded but it can be done! What an awesome design!!! What software did you use to design such a beautiful piece?
Also, I notice that the sculpture fits my hand perfectly allowing me to rotate the ball with my thumb and I've taken to carrying the piece in my coat pocket. It's an ideal combination of art, science and magic that helps explain what 3D printers are capable of and what needs improvement.
Bravo, good sir!
