The 3D Models of Loubie vary to offer everything from grinning pumpkins to knighted pigs to singing serpents, frog dolls and far more. The British 3D artist (also known as Louise Driggers), now hailing from Texas, owns several open source 3D printers and loves to share her designs. The Sorceress is her latest, and would obviously be a unique addition to anyone’s desk, crafting, or gaming area. The 3D printed piece is meant as a stylus or penholder, with the Sorceress holding it in horizontal fashion as if she’s offering it up to the gods. It offers quite a vision, and if you take it to work, you might have more people stopping by for conversation that you want on a busy day.
“She was a great deal of fun to sculpt and a challenge to ensure details and expression would translate to a 3D print. I’ve tried to design her so anyone can achieve a decent result even if they don’t have access to a top end printer,” relays Loubie on her site.
Loubie tried something interesting with this design as well, in listing it for sale, rather than free, at her Cults site. She asked only $1.98 and the experiment turned out quite well as her fans and newcomers to 3D printing seem to be more than willing to pay the small price.
“I have to admit, I was rather nervous putting a model up for public sale like this. What if nobody liked her or wanted to buy her? Fortunately, that does not seem to be a problem. I think I would class this as a successful experiment,” said Loubie.
The Sorceress’ creator adds that this new 3D design can be scaled easily, either up or down, without affecting the 3D printed result. She does, however, envision 18cm as the best height, although says that it has been printed as small as 10cm. Loubie points out that either Netfabb or Meshmixer should work very well for scaling the 3D model.
“I would love to see a really large print of her,” says Loubie, who 3D printed her Sorceress on an Original Prusa i3 MK1, using a 0.4 mm nozzle.
The prototype was tested previously on a Zortrax V10 and ZYYX+, compliments of Hawk 3D Proto. So far, the Sorceress (requiring no supports) has only been printed in PLA and HTPLA V3. Here are some more stats on the design and print:
Filament: Atomic Gold 1.75mm PLA
Layer height: 0.15mm
Filament: Atomic Dark Cherry Red 1.75mm PLA
Layer height: 0.2mm
Filament: MeItink Silver 1.75mm PLA
Layer height: 0.2mm
