How can this be 3d printed? It's too high quality!!
>>1132285need a very expensive 3d printer fo that shitt
>>1132285Depending on its scale it could be SLA, which cures liquid resin using a laser. Very high quality finishes - high enough to print most of this statue outright - but very limited size.If it's bigger it could be SLS. Powder lasered together. It can retain high, but grainy, detail. Finishing by hand, on the part of an artist, could produce quality of this caliber.

>>1132285It's about patience, finishing and setup. It could be done with a $300 printer if you have the right skills.

>>1132285I think the pants are fabric, with the legs being separate from the body before assembly.
>>1133071The Formlabs Form 2 is generally considered the best, for its overall package, SLA printer on the market. It's pricey but the quality is good and the resins are good. SLS isn't really consumer friendly at any level.
>>1133107I have a Formlabs Form 2, and i agree it's pretty dope.
