Hi. I rarely post what I print here even though I’ve been an operator > 1 year. I printed this a few weeks ago. I like to print art and personal projects when my Form is idle from real jobs. This is a work in progress.
Also, ironically, there is a new theory about Nefertiti’s tomb, today!
“Has Nefertiti’s tomb finally been found?”
About this print … It’s from captured data performed by a museum curator (although I do my own laser scanning as well).
It was printed at 0.05 mm. I’m sure I could have pulled out more detail on the necklace, but it was suitable for my time available on my bot between jobs. Yes, it has mineral oil on it in this picture. I had just run it through some post process (i.e. bath & sanding). It’s also to help protect it, since right now it’s in a public area where people might handle it. The next step is to paint it as per the original bust … or possibly electroplate it.
If you’re wondering about the stand, it’s a repurposed trophy stand. I have about two dozen of these which I acquired free.
Here the original piece:
Here is the museum scan process for those interested:
I am an avid buff of ancient history. This particular period of ancient Egypt was an intriguing one to me.
