RAPID PROTOTYPE DESIGN PROCESS
Since the final product is an actual real 3d printed object, a lot physicality and technicality were taken into consideration during the designing process. For example, the thickness of the solid parts have to be calculated and tested for optimal lightweight and rigidity and flexibility so it won’t break easily. The 3d model went a few adjustments before it was ready for mass commercial 3d printing.
To date, hundreds of these tiger heads have been printed and found their new home all around the world through Shapeways marketplace.
