    A collaboration between 3D print consultancy Modla and artist James McNabb. I helped design and assemble the sculpture.
Modla collaborated with artist James McNabb to recreate a 3D printed version of his City Scape sculpture.  The model, printed in SLS Nylon has over 300 unique and individually designed buildings protruding from the central mount.
My responsibilities for the project included designing over one third of the protruding structures, assembling the sculpture and assisting during the photo shoot.  As a follow up project I worked on designing a self locking mechanism to simplify the assembly of the sculpture.
