Glow-in-the-dark windmill and farming robot


Perhaps you guys will enjoy these, I made them in Zbrush and Blender.
Zbrush mostly to merge the meshes and prepare them for 3D printing.

The first is a windmill printed with a phosphorescent filament. It gets charged with light and shines surprisingly strong at night! (I can barely get to sleep :wink:

And another one that came out quite well was this “farming robot”, that has a reservoir for dirt to grow stuff in. This is printed in turquoise PLA/PHA filament. Both models were printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2.

Isn’t it cute?

I made these as “rewards” for an Indiegogo campaign, for an animated film I’m making.
Please check it out if you like these! And if you want to help my campaign, even a small contribution would be great.

Here’s some screenshots. As you can see, I’ve put all the parts on the “floor”, because with filamet printing it builds up from the bottom (as opposed to with powder print, where your object could be “floating” in 3d space).
