Endangered Species: Rhino

3D model description

I got the idea to model the bust of a rhino, and print it in a "wireframe" style like I'd done with previous designs. This one is produced with a different wireframe creation technique however, where I instead generated blobby particles along the polygonal edges, and converted the results back into polygons.

I tried to minimize overhang issues by tracking the angle of the edges via a Python script in Maya. Very little cleanup was needed after print: No raft or support material needed.

The frame is actually a pattern I drew on some scrap MDF (nothing 3d printed there) , jigsawed out, and then routed the edges plus slapped on some white paint. Print is affixed via epoxy.

The rhino I painted red on the inside, and sprayed rubberized black undercoating on the outside.

Alternatively, some people see a penguin walking up the wall. Once you see it, you can't unsee it....
