Grotesque Mayan Urn

Creation's quality: 5.0/5 (1 vote)
Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

Captured with 123DCatch at the American Museum of Natural History. Edited and ready for 3D Printing.

"Modeled and incised pottery of many distinctive kinds is found at Maya Lowland sites. The large urn in the center, from the southern part of the region, has the characteristically grotesque face of much Maya sculpture."

3D printing settings

Captured through a glass case at AMNH. Clean Glass + Few Obstructions + Good Lighting + No Glare = Success! Edited out excess geometry, then quartered the design. Mirrored on both the x and y axis in Blender, and joined by filling faces and loops manually. Nose re-sculpted for better printability, a few creases enhanced, a few bits smoothed out. Flattened top & bottom.
