Never had so many flowers on this Cactus at the same time before – so just in case it’s thinking of pegging out – here’s some piccies.

A freshly opened Poppy, and a very tiny solitary Bee that only seems to go on these flowers on a Copper coloured leaf tree.  Those flowers are about 4mm across for scale.

Rigid.Ink will be taking a number of my 3D prints to a Birmingham exhibition later this year.  As I didn’t want to send them my original Mandelbulb they kindly gave me a spool of Gold/Bronze PLA to print out a backup.

I have removed most of the support material from the Mandelbulb, but now have several thousand fine hairs to trim off – but these images give you the basic idea.

Hot off the Anet A6 3D printer. A Mandelbulb emerges from the Matrix. This is a 165mm diameter Mandelbulb in Rigid.Ink Gold/Bronze PLA at 0.2mm resolution and 30% infill. 91-hours and 19-minutes to print. Probably another 100-hours to remove all the supports. Approximate weight 800 gram.

I had a little break from the 3D printing over the Christmas period, but bought 3 reels of Rigid.Ink PLA a couple of days back to get some more work done.

First off the printer was a “Cusp Catastrophe” in Rigid.Ink Gold/Bronze PLA.  This mathematical object has been printed out for an American Mathematics Lecturer friend of mine to use in his teaching.

Other images show Moai in Natural, Gold/Bronze. White, Trans Blue and Black PLA.

Finally, as I had the camera out, there is a pic of all my prints up to date (except for Alexa top left and the Egyptian Cat Bookend top right).

Just completed a 5th order Menger Sponge, 180mm on a side, using the Anet A6 printer.  346 hours of printing and 1.5kg of Rigid.Ink white PLA filament.

Got today’s EPOD with an image of Romanesco Broccoli showing its Fractal structure.

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.
