3 fractal sculptures by bib993 3 fractal sculptures by bib993
I visited today the exhibition in Viroflay (in France, near Paris) where I have 6 pieces: 3 large format prints and 3 sculptures (3D printed and painted). I found the layout of the sculptures very nice and I had the pleasure to discuss with the public to share my passion for fractals.

Check out my 3D printed fractal sculptures on Shapeways!

Thanks for the favs:)

these are amazing - I am furiously scratching my head trying to figure out how you get such beautiful smooth prints.......trade secret?? lol :D

:iconbib993:
bib993 Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Getting smoothness is not the objective, too easy! Instead I try to get as much detail as possible (fractal roughness).
No trade secret, I use the Laplacian smooth filter in Meshlab. Cheers :)

I guess I kinda meant accuracy, not smoothness - and thanks for that - I knew there was a 'click' that I had missed somewhere :D

OK, I see. Getting accuracy is actually a big challenge because of the 1 million polygon limit (on Shapeways) and the material constraints (minimum thickness). 1 million seems a lot, but not when you are dealing with fractals! All these 3 pieces do have between 900K and 1M faces, after optimum decimation.

Thanks! People are intrigued. Lots of questions about the creation process. A quite high proportion knew about fractals, but very few about 3D printing (or thru the 3D printed gun story only)

Wow, it's really nice to know there are places where people know about fractals. :D
Around 2 cities I've lived in, 2 or 3 people I know had heard about fractals before me mentioning them. )=

I think it's a video of the same guy... But I seem to have mixed up the animal used...

I really love how they seem to glow. Maybe you could do that on purpose in a fuuture sculpture, carve out a hollow in the bottom and put in an LED.
