When Shapeways introduced Alumide for the first time a few months back, I finalized “Gyro the Dodo”, an Ode to “Gyro the Cube” and its fans 🙂
With a more facetted and yet organic look I had hoped to create something a little sci-fu. (not a typo)
Unfortunately the Alumide proved to be too brittle for that specific design, and I had no time to redesign it before the Alumide trial period was over.
So to test the mechanics, I instead printed it in the White Strong & Flexible material :
One day soon, I hope to dye or paint it in some cool colors. (Anyone know a good place to buy pearl/bi-color paint in spray cans ?)
As for the Alumide.. It was re-introduced recently, a bit more expensive, but I will probably redesign the Dodo to be compatible (read : Larger !)
Thanks for reading !
