Hey Shapers,

Over the past six years of studying architecture, I used a number of 3D-modeling softwares, from FormZ, Bonzai, and now, to Rhino and Maya. Although these softwares appear extremely different at first, their overall operational mentality is very similar.

I used Rhino to model my thesis project, for a period of six months, and I have used Maya for a few weeks. I decided to challenge myself and combine the best of both worlds in creating the sculpture below:

Now the trick is to successfully 3D-Print it, and the next step is to possibly display it at MOMA.

There has never been a point in the history of our planet, that even the greatest sculptors could not carve something of the sort, out of one piece of material.

Thanks to Shapeways and 3D-Printing, one's wildest imagination can take shape.

Cheers!

Excellent work, well done!

I model in Rhino, but am trying to branch out into organic modelling as well. Looks like Maya might be a good route to go.

Yes you can use maya, but you can use Rhino like maya if you install (tsplines plugin) check out this video:

I like maya because you can get into character modeling and its animation possibilities are endless

Neat model! Nice to find some fellow Rhino users using Shapeways.
