These were printed off the MakerBot via my Sketchup file. I’m going to cast and replicate them–and then position them for the mold. I’ll be casting the negative space to generate my piece.

Mold complete!

Mold complete!

I finally have the mold complete. Its a bit dirty from the wax pieces chipping off, but will clean up nice. It was a pain to get the fingers out… they got stuck in there with all the suction. I like it as an object… the negative voids are so delicious. People cant resist putting their fingers in them. 😉

This guy is ready to be molded. Soon I’ll be able to cast a uniform rubber tile to be assembled into a larger scale. I used wax to fuse the bottom and make it look seamless.

Hives.

I’m attracted to this form and want to make it out of rubber. This image was generated in Sketchup. I’ll be printing hexagons to keep it precise, and later cast and create this object. I think i like the green. Thoughts?

Out of the wax…

Out of the wax...

Just a teaser… I have all of them line up to help visualize what the final piece will look like. #excited.

Back to molds…

Back to molds...

Wax castings of my fingers. I have about 100 finger that I will be producing in rubber, which will later be adapted to my project!
