I received the print of my art deco brooch today!

http://www.shapeways.com/model/149440/louis_hay_brooch.html? gid=ug23490

It is a model of a facade decoration for our local museum originally drawn by a local architect in the 1930s. The actual facade was made as a simpler design so I thought Id make the more detailed version.

Original Drawing
index.php?t=getfile&id=5114&private=0

My model rendered
index.php?t=getfile&id=5115&private=0

And, the print from shapeways
index.php?t=getfile&id=5117&private=0

I think the print lost a certain amount of detail when it was smoothed for the polished gold effect but Im very happy with it! Very Happy

Thanks Whystler! It took a lot of tweaks to get it printable and it weighs a ton but my wife likes it and thats the main thing Very Happy I actually modeled the entire doorway in the frst place so maybe Ill work on making that printable as a desk decoration. theres no shortage of art deco in my town as we had an earthquake in 1931 and everything was rebult in that style

Stunning. I like a bit of Art Deco - there are certainly worse styles to build a town in! Wink

Very nice. Could I ask if you actually have a pin/clasp on the back and if so how you secured it?

lovely, it came out very well. And gold is the perfect material to have this in.

I wonder though, isn't it pretty heavy?

@ lensman, I secured a pin on the back with epoxy as I wasnt sure about soldering on top of the gold plate, its held up well so far.

@Chris89, I havent weighed it but yes it is heavy, less a brooch for a dress or shirt and more a brooch for a jacket or something with a little bit of stiffness to it.

Thanks for the comments!
