Brace Yourselves: 3D Printing is Coming

July 28, 2014 in Maker Blog Posts

Everyone who has seen the popular HBO series: Game of Thrones has probably thought about having a pet dire wolf.  Jeremy Slavitz decided to use 3D printing to make that thought a reality.

“I really wanted to make something using the 3d printers to verify that they are in fact as ridiculously powerful and capable as I’d believed they were.” – Jeremy

3D direwolfJeremy found the design when browsing Thingiverse.com, and once he showed me the final product it was hard not to show my envy.

“I was fascinated by the dire wolf for a couple reasons – first it had a unique polygonal shape – something usually only seen in old video games, not something professional sculptors make.”

I love it: using a 3D printer to create something in a style you want. Jeremy knew that sculptures don’t typically design their works in this style, so he took the art into his own hands, and into the Jumbo Maker Studio. I challenge you to follow Jeremy’s lead and test out just how powerful 3D printers are. You won’t be disappointed.
