Ornamental Bonsai Sculpture

Hey Guys,

I thought I would share this here. This is something I have been playing with on and off for a while with the end result being something I could get printed. I’ve uploaded it to Shapeways which is a 3d printing service where the model can be printed and bought. It stands 15cm tall and is printed in a high strength plastic material, these pics are only renders of the sculpture but I will update with actual photos once my one arrives.


Cheers, Benny




Great looking Bonsai Benny …Nice flow and rhythm :):+1:

Looking forward to seeing your update after you get your print of it…:):+1:


i’ll second that. this is the bonsai i’ve always wanted - beautiful.

We have about 30 of the little ones (real) in the back yard.
Judging by the price, you are having it printed solid?

Nice shapes…maybe a little outside “The Golden Section - Law of Proportionality”… still nice. :slight_smile:

Thanks guys! It finally arrived today. I’m really happy with how well it turned out. It needed a few tweaks as many of the finer branches were too small to print so the most of the tree was thickened. Let me know what you think.

3Point14 - I also have 15 or so real trees in the backyard :smiley: The model is hollow but only the pot and about half of the trunk as I didn’t want it to be easily broken.



Very cool conceptual tree… How big is the actual print?:+1:

SolidSnakexxx - Thanks! The print stands 15cm tall
