Flesh and Acrylic - 3D Print by BenHeine Flesh and Acrylic - 3D Print by BenHeine

(click or download to enlarge)

Here are the results of a collaboration with "Minimaal", a Belgian company making 3D prints. It was a new and enriching experience for me.

Photo 1: Flesh and Acrylic - Martin // Photo 2: Fight for Your Rights // Photo 3: Scanning Martin's arm // Photos 4, 5, 6, 7: Scanning & modeling Martin's arm // Photo 8: The 3D print is made with a ZCorp 3D printer. The main component used in this case is a monochrome powder called Z150. This powder gets injected layer after layer, according to the 3D model, until the object is totally reproduced with details and textures. To make a solid sculpture, Minimaal adds a Zmax epoxy, giving extra strength and durability to the 3D object // Photos 9, 10, 11, 12, 13: 3D print in progress // Photos 14, 15: Acrylic painting on the 3D print // Photo 16: Exhibition of the final piece in presence of the model at "Art Event" fair (Namur - January 2012)

I really like this model printing stuff, it helps to bring your digital creation into reality for a sort of 'reality check' when you're making something. I'm hoping to have a printed model of a character I'll make next year. 'course I don't know how complicated or expensive this process is...

you can print everything in 3D, the disadvantage is the price, kind of expensive, but nice results

...how expensive? And what kind of materials can it be printed in? I'm kinda hoping for pink glow-in-the-dark plastic.
