3D Printing an Anatomical Cross-Section Sculpture!

We experiment with a 3D printing technique to make it look like a solid object is embedded in a glossy piece of translucent resin, in this case a golden skull encased in a bust of the Venus de Milo. It’s a convincing effect that can be replicated using free modeling software and looks great 3D printed in resin like SirayaTech Simple Clear, painted with some Rub ‘n Buff. Follow along and try this project out yourself! (This video was made possible with support from Wondrium. Check out Wondrium and start a free trial today at http://www.wondrium.com/tested )
