Epcot Center Model

Postby robpauza » Sat Apr 07, 2018 5:59 pm

Hello everyone,

I thought I would go ahead and share another Raise3D printed custom model. I combined 3D printed elements with some laser cut pieces and I have to say... everything fit together perfectly. I'm continually impressed with the precision of my N2.

This model was created as a favor for a guy at work. It was for a "Trunk or Treat" event during last Halloween and his team's theme was Disney theme parks. His particular part was Epcot of course. He asked me the simple question of "How could he build a sphere?". I took that and went way to far and ended up with a full 3D model and a deadline of about a week and a half. Well... I took a few shortcuts in the end but somehow got it done in time. Here is how it turned out. It was approximately 23" wide x 17" deep x 18" tall. I used eSun PLA+.

Thanks for looking. Sorry if this is a bit pic-heavy.

-Rob

Here's the parts that were 3d printed:

Here's the parts that were laser cut:

I also incorporated some lighting using addressable LEDs and an Arduino microcontroller:

Then, it was time to print:

I laser cut the flat pieces and in Illustrator drew some concrete lines that were laser etched:

Next it was time to paint:

And finished!

The details look more than amazing!
What heavy after-processing works are to get the final result!
