George lasso the moon! Over christmas as a present I sculpted and 3D printed the moon caught in a lasso. This was the first model I modeled from the offset with prototyping in mind. Sculpted in Zbrush and made hollow so as to reduce material wastage and print time. Additionally I used Autodesk Meshmixer to analyze for problematic overhang areas and to create print support structures accordingly! Excited as to what can be done with these two pieces of software in unison. Printed in White PLA - print time 10 hours on a CEL ROBOX.

With Meshmixer I was able to identify areas which would encounter issues at print without the aid of support structures - mostly underneath the rope - It did identify a potentially problematic area under the nose but I chanced it without a print support as the ROBOX can handle overhangs of up to 45 degrees and I didn't want to risk tarnishing the face.
