Vigo the Carpathian

I’m in the endgame now…preping the model for 3d printing, tweaked the hair, added surface details but haven’t applyed them yet as geometry till i finish tweaking the model, filling gaps, undercuts and also did a test how im going to cut the model and add keys. Going to do one last pass on the face and the hair before i commit to print and go through the process of decimating, boolean and maybe dynameshing some objects.

Decapitated Vigo for print and also added a key but just before he told a final prophecy: “Death is but a door, time is but a window. I WILL BE BACK!”. I wonder if he meant as a print. More info on my page

Finished prepping the leather chest armor and the torso for print also hollowed out the pieces. More info on my page bellow.

Well it was pretty difficult to prep the arms and hands plus hollowing for the arms but i’m glad that’s finished, next up the legs.

Glad u enjoyed the video Jaime and hope you found something useful from it, I have to add extra holes on some of the parts to avoid the suction effect breaking the part while printing. Going to do more research on this before i commit to print but in the meantime finished the wall.
Cheers

Almost finished with the base, i knew this was going to be the most difficult piece to prepare for print, since i’m also going to mold and cast it i did a test separating some skulls for a better result, not sure if i should just print the base as a single piece. I still have to hollow out the base and cut it into 4 parts.

Added the head in the slicer program, after i made the video i added interior supports just to be sure.

First test print, still in the process of calibrating, didn’t realize manually calibrating an SLA printer is going to be such a huge pain but almost got the vat perfectly level.

After a long time of calibrating the printer i finally printed Vigos head at 50 microns, more info on my page.

Did an update clay render on the final version of the character, these are the latest pieces used for 3d printing and they also have been tweaked and matched closer to the painting, also changed the surface detail on the objects from the first renders and a different light setup.
