Printing and Stitching a 3D Plant

3D Printing

For the final project, I’m going to print and stitch a 3D plant. My technique for creating the the structure of the plant was to geometric shapes to create the structure of the plant, and to then project a grid on the 3d object, extrude the lines and offset them. once that wrap is done, I would delete the original 3D object and be left with a hollow 3D grid.

I went to print this at AMS, and they wouldn’t let me print a sample since the file was approved and they had no doubts that it would print well. I’m printing them on the Mojo printers in two parts, one part is scheduled to take 26 hours!

Once the print is done I’ll be able to buy the appropriate thickness of yarn. I imagine for the end result to look something like this, but in 3D:
