Earthquake Commemorative 3D Print

On September 16th 2015, the northern region of Chile was hit by a magnitude 8.4 earthquake and tsunami that devastated many coastal towns. Due to high standard construction and a population used to natural disasters, the quake only killed 13 people.

In honor of all the Chileans killed and injured by the earthquake, and all those who lost their houses and jobs, I designed a desktop stand for smartphones reproducing the Relative Moment Rate Function of the earthquake. It describes the rate of moment release with time after de earthquake origin, relative to the peak moment rate (7.22e+26 dyne-cm).

Information was taken from USGS webpage. The 3D model was created in Sketchup, exported to .stl format and printed on a PRUSA I3 HEPHESTOS 3D printer (layer height = 0.2). Finally was finished with spray paint.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        I decided to sell this model, and donate  the money collected to the people affected in the north of Chile. Thanks
