Actual Virtual Reality

Photo taken Saturday 7th 2020 First time card printed in 2d (22 aug 18) before the two prints of custom aluminium hexatrigons . The card had the first and only 2d printout of the model,








The doubts of some (at one stage even me) and the reality of others. The images work from right to left in terms of time, and from virtual to real objects, brought to you via the tools, skills and companies of Additive Manufacturing  plus some ‘ blue sky thinking models’ . On the journey there was some real doubts as to whether what is pictured was actually possible because all 3d printing especially in metal need to be supported or have supports which allow for the setting or cooling of materials at different stages of the job. That obviously need to be repaired or removed.

For this unless you have a printer of your own those background tasks are not visible. Safe to say this was overcome and why I respect those whom I do not necessarily know and whose efforts even within the same company don’t know each other  but from the outset made me at least recognise what has been done for the model  irrespective of where they were from with best wishes to them all for what has been done and what will be done in the future all being well. and of course many thanks.  As it seem that you guys are the only ones that gave me credit and have the experience as I could not  do nothing without you. Both

This material below was the suggestion made after the first requests were made..

Alumide natural  print looks like the registered design  picture- light grey

Two screws and my fireplace is gone, however between the linking of domains and brexit. Now covid19! I’m done, proving.( it never dawned on me, about the words ‘ back to the f……) Apologies!, I have  I have 5 cards left of the other if that proves anything.


Coincidence or fate? 

This below image is the same model as the one that was in the viewer, but viewed in an alternative viewer which relates to the productional stage of 3d model in viewer. Make special note of the percentage/ scale. I will see what i actually get and will not question one thing. It showed 0.01% that is the printed size

( a lesson learnt )

This page i have altered before, not to avoid the truth more to try to keep it factual. It is quite difficult to represent in image that what is protected as a real object but not with the planes.

And the model. above having some display problems with the colour, for multicolour 3d printing, which don’t have the same reference without it. But following suite i post these mistakes to inform / document.

Late Addition

It has been some time since I spoke about  this scale issue and to keep in suit with mistakes what I thought the print would look like from the model and the image proved to be INCORRECT. Although corrected or rather doubted and altered, it can be done just not as seen above are multicolour prints I received, The model/ print in question was all red in the end.

In regards to the multicoloured prints they do  exist. Also as to why the solid shape is only depicted as photographs,  (except for what is in a 3d viewer) is because until they were uploaded then produced / delivered they were virtual).

However as a new creation it has yet to manifest and there are flexible materials available to 3d print (.to the unbelievers)

Someone took my first sawdust and glue encased resin one like the tenable ones! (not its name by the way)

Screenshot with model. Actually tested it with online viewer last night it worked but needed to accept the repair deleted but possible I think! (nov ’20)

The reason why I have these spheres in the viewer is because all prints that were multi /coloured (including the ones with this arrangement of spheres) happened,  around the same time IN summer 2019. (i.materialise)

it would have been my other……..

don’t bother email I can no longer access it. I am saying nothing!


I tried to respond many thanks, I should count my blessing under the circumstances
I don’t possess the requirement to leave a comment? still saying nothing
