About this Product

Lathed and sculptured by the mathematical GODS Impossible for us to see or hold before the key to their world was handed over to us by the collaboration of Daniel White, Paul Nylander, Thomas Löwe, Jesse, Luca and many others at fractalforums.com.

For you who don't know about the quest for this particular Holy Grail, check out the original thread at fractalforums: http://www.fractalforums.com/3d-fractal-generation/true-3d-mandlebrot-type-fractal/

No need to search any more, It is now here, in my trembling hand! ;) It is possible to drink from it (but the material is "not foodsafe" according to Shapeways) A funny fractal detail is that the "bowl" contains a copy of the whole Grail, and that copy contains a copy…

This version is very expensive because there are lots of invisible details inside the "globes", if there are interest I could do a cheaper version where I have booled it out = less material to print.

@ArtefactStudio Hey Artefact! I managed to hollow it out and the volume is really reduced, might put it up this evening... so if you are still interested in that precious scotch bowl... ;)

@ArtefactStudio :) Thank you! I am working on it... might get the proper software for it any day now... And BTW I found this post about food safe paint in the forums: https://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=73221&&srch=food+safe+paint#msg_73221

@MANDELWERK Sweet! Do it in WSF, and let's toast to that. Love your mathematical, fractal work!

@ArtefactStudio Glad to hear you like my Grail! I will definitely try to make the bowl and interior hollow... I might want one which I could drink from myself, not only for display. Scotch sounds good! I very much doubt it would be printable in ceramics, it is only just printable in WS&F, and even if they would do it it would be even more expensive (around 400euro)… I'd rather paint the WS&F model with a foodsafe color... or go for it in stainless steel (which would cost almost 3000euros to print ;) I will contact you when I have made the hollow model (have to get hold of the software to do it) Cheers! ;)

It will likely still be pricey even after a boolean difference cleanup... but will you try it and see? Also, I know it's not mathematically Kosher, but would you be able to bring yourself to hollow out the top 'bowl' so I could drink scotch out of it? ;) I'd also be very interested to see this sculpture in foodsafe ceramic, and I'd definitely buy one.

@TastyPaper I know... it is not cheap, I hope you'll win the 4000$ and buy a whole setup! ;) Thank you Tasty Paper!

If I won a $400 lottery, I would splurge it on this bad boy, nice job!
