Plotting vectors again

DSC_0278s

I still can’t draw very well at all, that’s why I plot vectors!
Above is a 2D interpretation of Romero Britto’s “Big Temptation” sculpture. I started with a basic profile image of the sculpture and used Photoshop and Inkscape to trace it into a vector image. From there I did the same things mentioned in my Trinket contest post. See below for a video showing my 3D printer print parts of this image; it’s quite fascinating to watch.

Want to give your 3D printer the ability to pen plot too? I designed a clip-in pen holder and wrote a writeup over on Thingiverse. [Check it out.]
