Edouard Gautier created this espresso cup in Blender.
The ceramic 3D printing interested me since a long time and this summer I've decided to pass the gap. I use Blender since 4 years and experienced the 3D printing during a contest (where I won the 2th place) sponsored by sculpteo.com last year.
In this model, I was looking for see the constrains of details and thickness. I've used the great miikah's dynamic painting in wave to create a lot of variations in scale of details.
Send it to Shapeways and 3 weeks later, voilà, I know more on constraints :)
My next model is all ready on way to be print, I'll give you news when I receive it ;)
By the way, you can take a look at my shop at Shapeways -
new models are coming soon ;)
