This week’s selection is freelance 3D artist Andrew Jerez’s “Unholy Cross”.
As you can see in the image above, this is a rather large 3D print composed of many separate pieces glued together.
Jerez composed the piece in ZBrush and amazingly 3D printed it himself on his Ultimaker 2 personal 3D printer.
The final assembly was painted, as the parts were apparently printed using differently colored plastics.
While the design of the work is incredible, the act of printing it on a personal machine is also fairly complex. Jerez had to carefully divide the original model into printable segments that not only fit within the Ultimaker’s build envelope, but also were geometrically suitable for optimal printing.
