3D model description

A hungry polar bear fails to reach the fish held in the naughty seal’s mouth. Everytime the polar bear tries to catch the fish, the seal will sink back into the water and tease the poor, hungry polar bear.

In fact, polar bears are indeed always famished because of the worsening condition of the planet due to global warming, and the North Arctic has become warmer than usual. On top of this, the melting of the ice has shrunk the polar bears’ living area, and made it difficult for them to hunt. There are many signs telling us that polar bears and the polar ice caps are slowly disappearing.

The design, Polar Bear with Seal, was a paper DIY for the magazine Young Scientist. I really liked the concept, so I redesigned it into STL files. I hope this piece of art can convey a sense of beauty both in motion and stillness. While I was designing this, I put a lot of effort into observing the subtle changes in the movements of polar bears. In order to make this design work via 3d printing, I adjusted every component’s angle. Very few parts require supporting material.

Ultimately, this art piece took me the longest time to design, and it’s the most complex one I have ever shared. I am extremely happy with the outcome!

Thanks to SpiderMaker for sponsoring the creation of this work.

I am a designer and an art creator, was drawing comic strips and illustrations from an early age. Paper craft and toys are my main directions in this decade. In 2015, I started self-learning in 3D printing, and applied this technology as an authoring tool. It’s really pleased the invention of 3D printing because it brings unlimited possibilities on creations. As a designer who loves mechanical structure and the beauty of dynamic, I begin to create robots and Automate as well. Hope these art crafts would bring more and more inspiration and imagination to all of you.
