3D Printed Outcomes.

These are my outcomes from 3D printing today. I decided to print both the mechanical and organic set of Cybernetic Organs I mocked up in Rhino, that was later edited in MeshMixer. This produced the glossy, smooth surface on my second round of printing. I liked this effect, because to me, it felt more organic and fleshy than the first 3D prints were as they were more mechanical in construction. I was so pleased with these and will be spending tonight making more CAD models in Rhino as I want to make different cybernetic organs. I also think I want to try the lungs again and see if it looks any different or better than the one I already mocked up in Rhino.

I’m going to send Charlie Bull an email today to show her my outcomes and see if she could suggest if there was anything else I could do to them, as I have been smoothing  them out in MeshMixer, as Charlie is quite good with advice in Rhino. I will be spending a bit of time on the glossy outcomes, sanding them down on the bottom as the surface is more rough from where the supports had been put in place when printing.
