I am a physical sculptor who doesn't have very much experience with 3D modeling. I'm looking to have a model made of the 4 letters L O V & E.

I've attached a photo for reference.
I'm looking to make a 9" scale model of each of the letters including all the details of the birds. Ideally the model would be strong enough to be printed in SS.

Let me know if you are interested and we can go from there.

Looks like some of the art I saw at burning man.

I could make the model but a steel print that size without the birds would cost $700(I used Microsoft SanSerif for reference this is not the font used.)

So assuming the birds cut out a 3rd of the material we are looking at $460 or so. So if you have $500 budget for this model let me know and I will get working on it.(P.S. any close ups of the birds?)

So here's the font. I've also mapped out a grid of birds that could be useful. I'll upload what I have.

And here's that grid of birds.

the letters should be 3 inches deep with the bird cutouts on all of the surfaces except the bottom.

The O and the V should have a rectangular plate as the base. Ideally the same size as the bottom surface of the L and the E.

Post printing, I am going to adhere a thin plate to the bottom of each letter that has a friends wedding vows inscribed on the bottoms.

Please let me know if this is doable. Smile

Hey there,

I'd be willing to take on this project if your still in need of someone to create the model?

What is the time frame?
What's your budget for printed model? and modeling time?

I can have a mockup tomorrow if you want to move forward

best,
C
