Summary

This commemorative bust is in honour of the late great H.R Giger.
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 .

Instructions

Printing

  • 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.
    Pieces
    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.

holy WOW !! love it, printed it. It took 21hrs 52 mins for the all in one model, going to print again when i get time added to print to the max size list hahaha

There is a gap between base and mid parts! I manually fix it, unless it'll not print in 1.5 size (no connection between parts)!
Please fix a model.

I made a plate for the base jockey

Blimey. There's some work huh.

Geoffro, have you come across a derelict alien ship at all?

Hi Geoffro,

Can you tell me what you used and how to paint this? Awesome job!

Hi, printed in ABS, painted with non gloss acrylics and then spray gloss after.

Made one with my form 1+! AWESOME WORK!!! LOVE IT!!!!
