Welcome to Denver, the Mile High City!
MiniWorld celebrates Denver and Colorado with a collection of landmarks, from historical buildings to modern art sculptures. This model is part of the Denver Collection!
This monumental sculpture is located outside of the Denver Convention Center, in Colorado, USA. Although nicknamed "Big blue bear" by locals, this piece of art is actually called “I see what you mean” and the author is Lawrence Argent. It was completed in 2005. It has become a fun and beloved landmark of Denver that represents the joyful spirit of the city as well as the native fauna of the mountains.
MiniWorld is excited to bring this historical model to life! All models are made by hand and brain from scratch, please give credit, it's all about spreading culture and education!
MiniWorld is the collection of 3D printable models of landmarks of the world.
Directions and Recommendations:

You can scale it up 150% or 200% to get better definition of details
How I Designed This
As all of MiniWorld's models, this is made from scratch by eye, brain and hand in SolidWorks using photographs and visiting the real landmark. Hand-drawn sketches in paper help understand the volume and shape. Being an organic figure, it was a good challenge to make this in SolidWorks. The tessellation effect was achieved in Blender once the model was finished.
