Actual Virtual Realities

    Photo taken Saturday 7th 2020 First time card printed in 2d (22 aug 18) before the two prints of custom aluminium hexatrigons above. The front has the first and only 2d printout of the model, As an image it is on the photograph with the words “blue sky thinking”.

First aluminium print to the right, the second Aluminium print to the left. I have the decency not to show the associated complications. I did ask!

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.

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


First many thanks to the developer who created this viewer! (it is interactive), In order to allow you to engage with 3d virtual space and me to show you the full 360 views of 3d models..

Coincidence or fate? 

This below image is the same model as the one 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.

 ( 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.

This was the actual pic. When I discussed this issue it became clear that it could be problematic. As yet I do not believe I have crossed any boundaries. The print with flocking is only print although I sent to be digitally watermarked. The Logo render was in the downloaded file folder. I admit I took that pic after Corona but that is when I could use that render with the  model. (Now removed )

I received a recent promotional email in relation to this company products See link ‘honest‘ on the front page!

(May 2020) , the actual file is multicolour (this blue/ purple colour,

this is square the model is not

 but as you can see its a matter of selection and scale  reduction:-) ALSO IS UNPRINTED Hence virtually real.
