This commemorative bust is in honour of the late great H.R Giger.
This is a non-commercial print. It is a tribute piece, please do not sell prints of it (the please was just customary. Non commercial means no sell. Capiche?)
Want to give your printer a workout? Have a resin based printer and want to show what it can do? (I wish i did! :))
The original model, created by the extremely talented Sean Kennedy in Lightwave more than a decade ago.The model was originally designed as an animation backdrop, so alot of parts were single sided and not full meshes, so needed rebuilding manually.. so many polygons... so many, it really was a tricky job.
Put it this way, on a machine with 32gigs of Ram, decimating this model crashed Zbrushed several times, which is rare as it performs so well.
Please read the instructions for printing info .
- Print the base at 5% infill or more
- Print the middle section and gun end with less infill than the base
to keep it balanced.
Supports and Raft
Needed!! Not as hard as it looks to remove.
When removing the support, just don't go hacking at it, be gentle and you should come out ok. I broke one pipe and glued it back, no worries.
I printed mine in 3 pieces as I wanted a certain size, I have included the Full print, a cut version and a full plate cut version.
