Inverted Standing Buddha Marcus Aurelius with Manual Supports

Prints (0)


Recently an old pal of mine offhandedly mentioned on Twitter that boy howdy would he like a Standing Buddha Marcus Aurelius for his living room. You'd be scraping support plastic off the underside of this model for days if you printed the original, but thanks to a little trick I picked up at the Make: Magazine 2015 Digital Fabrication Shootout the need for support is much, much reduced. All's you gots to do is rotate the model roughly 225° so its feet are pointing skyward and manually put in a few supports in your software of choice. This technique should work for many humanoid models. I also added a circular base. A little super glue or epoxy should hold things together.
