Project Process Planning – 3D printed flower #2


Having used Google Sketch-Up as the software to create the 3D image I wanted, was quite restraining for me as I did not have the ability to get the natural looking shape of the flower that I wanted. This lack of detail was not from a fault of the software but considering I only just started using it – I was still an amateur and unable to attain what I have envisioned.

Working on each layer separately was easier to get a look that I was satisfied with. When it came to putting the flower together I get the below image.

The sharpness and straightness of the petals bothers me. It began to look more like a water lily – not what I envisioned but still a flower none-the-less.
