Fun with 3d printing
My archaeology professor is a huge fan of H.P. Lovecraft. He took advantage of the school's 3D printer and printed up a statue of Cthulhu. It is a 3D model of a drawing that Lovecraft made in 1934. My professor then painted it and put it behind glass. It looks like a rare artifact.

I agree. I believe my professor got the glass dome and base at hobbylobby. I'm having two of these printed up. One is for my friend who is a big fan of Lovecraft. The other is for me; I'm not a huge fan because I've only read a couple of his short stories. I just think it looks neat.

I am disappointed you didn't print out a highly detailed penis.

It's not THAT kind of fun with 3D printing.

I'll inform the school that they are using the makerbot incorrectly. It's either giant dildos or nothing at all.

Just in case anyone is interested, this is where the file came from.

In 5 years we all gonna be able to afford these. ... I'm thinking the first home applications will be bongs and dildoes ... not necessarily in that order. Hobo

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

It's amazing technology. You're lucky to have acess to it.

(yeah, my mind immediately went to penises too).
