3D Sculpture for Mini-Art Piece: Blind

in 3D Printing Design held by alexism
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
The smallest actions, characteristics, attachments, interactions stay with us. People follow us, affecting our consciousness in subtle ways to form each unique part of our being.

Imagine a representation of people leaving traces in your home with finger prints of places they might have touched.

Getting tactical, think of small oval pads for each finger print. Coming up on all sides of the pad would be a splash. They are like fingerprints with energy coming out of them.

Please the attached sketches and inspiration.
–Fingerprint pads for all 10 fingers. The shapes should feel organic, like mini sculptures. They can be similar to each other with modifications – no need to create an entirely different design for each one.
–The fingerprint pads should have stylized fingerprints, rather than real fingerprints, which are lighter and difficult to see. No need to make them as complex a real fingerprint. They can be stylized and less complicated.
–The pad should be the size of a real fingerprint. The splash will be bigger, but not too much bigger (within a few inches around the finger print).

The file format should be an STL or other printable file
–Minimum wall thickness: 1mm
–Minimum details: .5mm

–One file with all 10 fingerprints.
–One file with one finger print to test materials.

steel, transparent resin, or polyamide
Don't Wants:
An angular sculpture – the shapes should feel organic and beautiful.
Ask for Sample:
i'd love to see one of the ten finger pads (if easier, you can create the pad and splash without the actual finger print).

I've attached a sample design for one pad, let me know if I'm on the right track. Once you're happy with the design I'll create the other pads.

#14 pad1_1 by xyzPixeller
It's a start point just to see if I'm on the right way and also to know if you like the design. I just model one finger pad without fingerprint lines (just index finger trace). I've also uploaded a zip file that includes a few renders.
Actually, I didn't understand how other finger pads should be different and hope if you like my design tell me what exactly modifications you want so I could provide other pads. Hope you like it.

Hi @luketmidayo–
There does not need to be a background wall for the file. The mini wall thickness is 1mm and the minimum details should be .5mm. Thanks for your questions.

Should there be a background wall for the file with the 10 fingerprint pads, and also how thick should each pad be?

3D Fuel's Company Mascot - Chameleon
3D Fuel is a 3D printer filament manufacturing company. Our mascot is the panther chameleon! We are looking for a cartoon looking chameleon that we can print without supports in a single print. If we must have supports the less supports the better. We don't want people who print this to have to "clean it up" too much. This is something that we would like to bring to trade shows and post on our website with our different color filament. We want this mascot to be an icon! When people see this chameleon they will know what company it belongs to.
3D printable mount to turn 'tiny whoop' drone parts (+paper) into a remote control paper airplane with FPV
I would like to remix 5 'things' on 'thingverse'. The core 'thing' that inspired the project is this paper airplane motor mount created by Peter Sripol: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2905006 This video describes how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSDNgnhJ-FM But, I’m using different drone parts, and adding a camera. Full details are provided in the attached PDF. The reason for remixing five 'things' is that means the hard work of sizing the 3d-printed parts to match the electronics has been done for us. Note that I do not need a CAD file, just a 3d-printable .stl file. Note that I'm asking for three versions.
