A re-creation of Henry VIII'?s Crown - originally worn by the Tudor King at Hampton Court Palace. As a potent symbol of power and religious authority, the original was destroyed at the Tower of London in 1649 by Oliver Cromwell, following the abolition of the monarchy. Made of silver gilt and comprising 344 rubies, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds and pearls and five religious sculptures, it was painstakingly recreated in 2012 by the then Crown Jeweler, Harry Collins, following extensive research by Historic Royal Palaces'? curators into original inventories and contemporary paintings.
This reconstruction has been scanned using structured light 3D scanning and cross polarised photogrammetry to produce this model.
To see a video of this model being printed using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Stereolithography (SLA) printing techniques visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcUJYM-sv2E

would someone make me one and I will pay for it. been searching for this one for a while now. Wish they have the british crown of india, imperial state crown and st. edward crown on a 3d print

Printed this the other day on a 5th generation makerbot at 0.2 with raft and supports. Uploaded a potato quality photo to boot.

Unfortunately, this does not seem to work in PLA.

anything that will work in ABS will work in PLA, depending on how much work you put into it in terms of creating supports and tresses. I have yet to find a design i cannot reproduce using PLA. If anything, PLA is better than ABS. ABS warps and bends too much and has issues sticking to the build plate.

Any chance this could be printed by a measly FDM and still turn out good ? :(

We printed it using SLS and SLA techniques, so not quite sure what it would look like from a FDM printer. We'd love to see the results though!

Great piece! Can't wait to print it out gold!

Please do share the pictures with us (after you win the lottery maybe?)

Dang, that's a huge STL file....
