The anchor and moray eel printed in wood filament, sanded and brushed with Minwax wood satin. A semi-gloss varnish was applied later.
Although I attached the whole model file (anchor and eel), I also added separate files for the anchor and eel, as printing each model separately is easier and takes less support material.
** All payable and free models are intended for personal use only.
Printer: CreatBot and CR-10
Supports: Yes (for the eel only)
Started modeling back in the early 90s with Autodesk 3D Studio, when it used to ship with 16 3.5 floppy disks. Later I started using Maya, ZBrush, Fusion 360 and recently Modo, with the aid sometimes of Adobe illustrator and Photoshop mainly for creating alpha brushes/shapes.
Still fascinated with the evolution of 3D printing, as back then models were eventually stored in folders and that's it. To print however those created 3D models, physically see them, touch them and place them right in front of you on the desk with different colors and materials, is simply magical.
3D printing is a modern revolution, a movement as some like to call it, and I'm very glad to live it and be part of it, knowing that we are just starting, and that one day we will be laughing at the current FDM plastic filament based printers for being an old primitive technology.
HP Fusion Color 3D printers will be on our desks one day with the price of current multicolored documents/images printers. No doubt about it.
