First 3D Print

My first 3D print of the Harimandir Sahib Gumut (dome) printed in SLS nylon by 3DprintUK and is 4 inches high (10cm). This was done as a quick test for future projects and also to explore converting virtual 3d models into real physical objects. I was very pleased with the quality. Subtle details can be lost on 3D prints so I will start to exaggerate details in future prints and also thicken up thin parts of the mesh.

In comparison here is a sample from a makerbot home 3D printer. I wasn’t as impressed with the Makerbot print but I can see how useful it can be for producing prototypes.

Big fan of yours here from Los Angeles, CA. Been keeping up with your work, glad to see fellow Singhs pushing their creative limits and combining religion with technology. I work in Cinema4D and just ordered my PrintrBot Simple Metal; looking forward to doing similar Sikhi-related projects! Thank you for sharing Taran!

Good stuff brother!
Danny
