Finally I got something rapid prototyped. This is the golem figure from before, fused deposition modelling using a prodigy stratasys machine at central st. martins. Resolution was at medium (=0.254mm/layer) it took 7 hours to model and cost £72 to make – it is only 9.6 cm tall, several fingers fell off in the process. hmmm. Ben the technician was pretty happy with the outcome.
