We wrote of an unusual crowd funding project to back what would be North America’s largest 3D print to date. The project was to print noted 3D artist Bathsheba Grosman’s Rygo sculpture using the D-Shape concrete 3D printer. 
We’re happy to see that the project was indeed successful as the print has been completed, even though the crowd funding initiative fell a bit short of its monetary goal. The project reinforced a couple of key things: first, it’s possible to crowd fund an artistic 3D print. Secondly, you can print big things. 
Where can one gaze on this amazing 3D sculpture? You’ll have to visit the VanDusen Visitors Centre in Vancouver after the print is unveiled on July 26th.

  1. Now that's a very huge 3D print! The first time I've seen such fine masterpiece. Too bad it's in Vancouver, it must have been great to see this up close.
