@FtzMechanix Sorry for the late response... well, i think some printed stuff on White Detail and then soaked on a strong tea all nigth give a similar look.... like the Nocturnal Watch of Whystler, looks really amazing and gave a similar look.

@MacBurro No worries. It looks amazing. What material would you suggest to have it look similar to that? I am very interested in this piece.

@FtzMechanix Well, that's a 3d simulation of the world, how it would look like more or less.... right now i only have real fotos of the smaller version of that model for now... sorry for the confusion man.

@Darking i dont mind it so theres no problem, i had the same questions at first. well, shapeways have an automatic validator for the model, that was one of the first filters, and then if you want to print on one particular material, you should read the properties, or else when you send it to print it would be rejected. this two filters served me to test the model (mine was rejected 4 times, one at the update, 3 when send to print). the last one is when you finaly print it, you finally see if there were last mistakes (that was the 5 change in the version, i didn't like some parts so i changed them).

@MacBurro how did you know the first attempts were unsuccessful? did shapes ways tell you or were they printed off? sorry about all these question but I'm interested on how people such as yourself make designs like this one. I'm wanting start printing off my own design and i would like to know what to expected when i try this my self.

@Darking i used 3d max to make the model, and the final version i think it was the fifth try i guess... i had to change some parts of the model to let it print correctly, the size of the bars were one of them, but others were that i had to remove some parts of the original model, and in the first two models i tried to make a rotating world but it didn't work too well, and some other stuff like that.

@MacBurro what did you use to make this model and was there any issues you had like with the small bars in the globe?
May 15, 2013, 8:26 pm
@Darking well... when i made this model i was just investigating about 3d printing and all the rules of that, and at the same time i was looking into the steampunk stuff, so when i found this site, i tried to make a desk decoration of the world, and at the same time, a model who could test the limits of the complexity of 3d printing, and since the steampunk/post-apocalyptic got a lot of cables, pipes, springs, etc. i just mix them a little bit and this was the result... i guess,

@MacBurro how may i ask did you come up with the idea for this model?

@MacBurro OK cool. I got the model and noticed that it had what look like text that was too small to be read. I wasn't sure if they said something and the printer couldn't make it out or if you meant it to be like that. Thanks again for the great model. I love it!.
