    Wow these look so good. Impressed by the printer! haha the picture really reminded me of the laser transportation scenes from the Gantz franchise:

    Finally at vacation I glued the figure - or better the tablet stand - and can use it now. It makes life really easier:

    I got the improved version last night from my modeler. From my tests I know how to handle it for a good print. This one will be filled with gypsum to make it heavy and painted with metallic color. Something like this:

    I hope it'll become a breathtaking figure.

    Unfortunately I can work at the laptop of my wife only for two weeks. And this figure is a real challenge for the poor machine ;-) But I can make more simple things on it. Such as a nice accessoir for my PS4:

    A friend sent me this picture of a 12 cylinder engine and I thought: good idea to glue such a part to my PS4 ;-)

    I recently found a rather substancial section of the Large Hadron Collider on the Fusion website. There is a strong temptation to pick an obscure looking part, and print it then leave it lying about the house for guests to notice.

    When they ask what it is, I can nonchalantly reply, "oh that? just part of the Large Hadron Collider" :D

  4. Jamira I can imagine your model 40 foot high, made out of marble and situated in some ancient monument such as the Parthenon!

    I had such during my studies. A fellow student, our primus, told me about a new ship propeller wich allows ships to turn at a place without movement. "Ahh," I replied, "you talk about the Voith-Schneider-Propeller?" DANG!

    And exactly this is what I want. Such things - provocations if you want - can become the start of interesting discussions. But the best of all: Finally I'm able to manufacture it by myself. This is an undiscribable satisfaction.

    LOL YEAH! But I have to admit, that my Michelangelo ...
    upload_2018-6-18_15-15-19. Statue of David (just to show a naked male instead of all the naked females)
    ... lives in Florence. I just had the idea and manufactured the figure from polylactic acid marble ;-)

    But I relate myself more into direction of Art Deco. Lately I had the idea of a sphericial lamp with a woman statue on it. An old LP-cover of Uriah Heep "Return to Fantasy" was in my mind:

    using something like this:

    I love Art Deco. It is a fantasy world. It uses slim woman figures with small breasts. I usually like to add some muscles because I love strong women. At the other hand I'm one of these "old white sexist men". Although I wouldn't vote for Trump ("grab her pussy"). Art Deco is a more or less innocent way. It underlines sophisticated beauty. And it's one of the roots of steam punk. Sophisticated women plus irrational fantasy machines - unbeatable!

  8. Jamira I’m with you on the slightly naughty Art Deco female sculptures!

    Beautiful pieces of art + the slight eroticism - it’s a win-win situation. :)

    I also like strong women but more mentally strong or strong in character but without being muscular.

    A pretty nymph or siren would soon lure me on to the rocks of destruction.
