For professor Jason Ferguson the call from Spyder 3D World couldn’t have come at a better time. He was just about to purchase a 3d printer when he found out he won the Spyder 3D World printer giveaway contest.
A sculpture and design professor at Eastern Michigan University, Jason teaches the art of 3d printing. According to 3dPrintingIndustry.com, he is credited with developing the concept of Meshbombing, where public objects are from a public location, 3D scanned, replicated, and returned to its original location alongside its new, 3D printed sculptural reinterpretation.
Jason also used his new printer to bring to life one of his 7-year-old son’s drawings. Jason orthographically redrew Beckett’s creature whom he called “Crash Stomp” and then modeled the character in Sculptris. Beckett received a printed Crash Stomp for his birthday.
Here are some other photos of makes Jason printed from designs he downloaded online. Design credits are included.
