PMC 3D Print

 

Having sculpted this wee chap in Zbrush and painted him up a few weeks ago, I was damn keen to get him 3D printed. I uploaded him to i.materialise.com and purchased a print about a week ago and today he arrived on my doorstep.

There’s something satisfying about holding a tactile incarnation of a character you’ve designed in your hand. It taps into that childlike urge to hold and manipulate and examine things. It’s so much better than just seeing it on screen. It feels like the logical conclusion of the fascination that first inspired me to start drawing pictures of the toys I had when I was a kid. All I know for sure is that it puts a smile on my face.
