The perfect companion for your copy of "On Such a Full Sea!!"
Finally, after months of printing, I allowed myself to upgrade to the truly amazing Makerbot Replicator. Now my prints look much more professional.
This fish design is a 3D (2D really) representation of the fish design found at the beginnings of chapters in the novel "On Such a Full Sea", written by Chang-Rae Lee.
The third picture above shows the original design from the book that I made this 3D file of.
"We, at the height, are ready to decline.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves
Or lose our ventures."
-William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
The original picture of the koi is not mine. I made the 3D file representation, but the original picture is not of my design
Printed on my new Makerbot Replicator
Scale to fit your needs. The bigger the better for the fine detail.
Be careful removing the print from the bed as the fine detail is easy to accidentally break. But with care, the print should come off fine and look as good as ever.
