Today’s Objet vlog post features one of the nicest 3D printed models I’ve seen from an Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer!
The ‘Ship in a Bottle’ created here features a solid bottle, 3D printed in Objet’s Clear Transparent material. And suspended within it we have our traditional sailing ship printed in Objet Rubber-like Black material. Both the black and the transparent materials are inseperably bound together. (The only way to 3D print a ship in a hollow bottle would be to include a wide enough opening to remove the support material from within – which would sort of defeat the point really. But that’s a challenge for another time. )
Printing on the Objet Connex system in 30 micron layers allows you to clearly see the incredible detail of the ship – including the minuscule spider-web-like rigging between deck and masts, the crow’s nests, railings and flag poles. Enjoy.
