- Every #FuturistFriday, you’ll be able to chat with Jim as he talks about what he’s learned this week, while he sips on a cocktail and Models something for our #IndieGame
Wrought Iron Heart Pendant
Whipped up this little 3d model last night. Wrought Iron Heart Pendant (3d printed in stainless Steel, and other special metals). It is loadable with scented oil and it has a radiator surface to “cook” the oil based on the wearer’s body temperature. Available at @Shapeways!
Turnip Prince Porcelain Prototype
This is a fan art design by Jim Inziello from a very popular movie in China called Monster Hunt. He created an opening at the top to fill the Prince with growing medium/soil so you can have him grow chia seed from his head. This is one of two #3dprinted Porcelain Prototypes that we had printed via #Shapeways.
It’s Tiki Doctor V!
The Hannya Mask Project
The first of 5 Collectible ScOwls
He’s available at ShapeWays in multiple materials
Test of PLA- on freshly modified REP2X
I was adding some details using Zbrush’s new poly editing tools on a small face from my BJD. I decided to refine the model a bit, adding some more details, and then I started to realize that I was getting her to look like Noa from the beautiful comic book Sky Doll.
For those of you not familiar with PLA, it’s a Plastic made with Corn. Most of the Consumer level printers use PLA because of it’s lower print temp and tendency not to warp. When I first got my Printer, I was under the impression that it would be able to do PLA, But the extruder path had some troubles doing that. I’ve modified my machine with an extruder from Robo Savvy, a nifty UK website.
The Spider Jerusalem Print
Some 3d Printed Jewelry Offerings From UniCron Studios
Check them out in other materials! Prices may be as much as 70% off preferred materials and still look and feel awesome!
Some of the new metals are actually cast and polished like traditional lost wax method rings. The Steel with infused/plated metals art done using state of the art Selective Layer Sintering into metal powder, with LASERS!
Here is Zarianna BJD in 123D Catch
Celebrating 14 years of developing what will eventually be both an epic story and a functioning automaton.
I’ve created an informal timeline of the Zarianna 3dprinted prototype. She started off as an experiment in Maya 1.0 back when I was learning nurbs modeling. I created my first water tight model and emailed it to Stratus Systems Back in 2001 (it was based on Bjork). Over the next few years I drew many more sketches and started developing a science fiction story about her, while working in simulation and then video games. After experimenting with paper clay, polymer clay, silicon molding and casting in resin, I purchased my first 3d printer for prototyping both the doll and automatons.
After the doll’s ball joint system is ready for production, we will be doing a limited run of resin cast BJDs and then we will expand from there. Jim plans on releasing select passages from the story with resulting iterations of Doll parts.
