Barnett Newman's Broken Obelisk by chrisniederer Feb 16, 2013

Description

I created this model on the urging of a friend who is a big fan of this largest of Barnett Newman's work, featured at MoMa for a long while. I'm sure it is not accurate to the orginal, but its as close as I could get from looking at pictures (i.e. not a scan)

Put up a picture Pelesko, would love to see it.
Managed to print on an UP! 3D printer with a brief pause for cooling at the point of the pyramid. Awesome design! Thanks!
One last question. What's the height of the sculpture?

Instructions

This sculpture is quite difficult to print. I did it as a very slow print speed on my Airwolf 3d. It is very prone to failure at the point of the pyramid. Cooling is definitely required.

I love this sculpture, I seen it a MOMA many times. Can anyone make a print of this for me? I'd be willing to pay.
Download the .stl. Then upload it to shapeways and have them print it for you.
