Step 8: Divided for the Sake of Economy

Although 3-D printing costs have decreased in the past few years, printing the entire fluted form would have been prohibitively expensive.  As a non-wealthy artist, I decided to instead invest a much larger amount of time in other processes.  This made everything else much more difficult, but is was a necessary decision.  I divided the form into a part 1/16 the radial section of the overall form.  Notice the notched sides that will allow for an accurate assembly, later on in the making. 
Thank you for sharing this. I am enlightened and inspired by your integration of technology and your art process. I have much more to explore now. Thank you again.
Wonderful process and documentation. Gorgeous outcome, too! Thank you so much for sharing.
