Introduction: 3D Metal Printed Bowl of Circles

About: self-unemployed maker

My colleague art.makes and I have been experimenting with shapes based on this basic pattern and various ways of making them. Here are photos of the shape 3D printed in metal and plastic. Also, attached is a medium resolution .STL for anyone who wants to print their own.

    Absolutely gorgeous!

    Hi,
    trying to figure out how to make curves like in your bowl. Which software and steps did you use? I cannot find any instructions.

    Probably SLS, Selective Laser Sintering.
