At the Birmingham TCT Show we talked to Steve Cox, Education Ambassador CREATE Education – Ultimaker (GB). He was showing some of his great 3D printing projects and sharing great tips&tricks. This week however a very special project by Steve, commissioned by Fuel3D, was presented at the CES2015.
“Those who know me will testify that my philosophy is that while I believe 3D printing is a great technology it’s one for which we need to keep finding new applications, and one where we need to keep pushing at the boundaries.” Steve Cox, Education Ambassador CREATE Education - Ultimaker (GB)
Fuel 3D proposed to print out a life-size bronze bust of their CEO, Stuart Mead. This is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) bronzeFill projects we’ve encountered. Steve had to split the entire model into 16 separate pieces, which in total took 92 hours of printing on the Ultimaker 2.
“In total there was almost 2.7 kgs of bronzeFill used in this model, so my 10% ColorFabb discount through 3D Hubs really did come in very handy!”
Truly impressive work by Steve and we hope to see a lot more of his 3D printing projects!
