Custom Pandora Charm

After much polishing and a blackened cavity pass this is starting to look a bit more like a proper charm. The weight is completely different however. Not something I'm going to do anything about.

A before and after of the high detail stainless steel 3d print from imaterialise. I don't think they polished it at all.
As you can see it is possible to buff it up, seen on the right on the calibration sprue.

Octopus Desk Tidy

Thought it would be funny to make a fake advert for this render.  Went old school apple with the design, not graphic design top quality but I thought the flip of black printed models with vivid blue background was funky and fresh.  :P

Anyway, I used the wire deformer tool in the end to get the right shapes for the tentacles and then topped it off with  modeling a apple iPhone Charger cable.  Last thing to do to this is the shell the object and put a hole in the base to attach a weight or magnet after the print.  Watch this space to see the printed results.
