3D Printed Articulated Titan-rec Figurine Proves that Detailed 3D Printing is Very Possible on an Ultimaker
The 3D printing world seems to have a fascination with creating fully articulated figurines. Whether it be doll-like characters along the lines of Barbie, action figures that appear ready for battle or mini-me replications of ourselves, there is just something special about creating our own tiny 3D printed movable creatures.
Back in August of last year, we did a story on a man named Sergey Kolesnik. He had created a super detailed and articulated 3D printed representation of a scorpion, which helped him gain quite the reputation within the 3D modeling and 3D printing space. Kolesnik, who originally set out to be a lawyer, later found his calling when he discovered how much he loved to create 3-dimensional art.
Living in the small town of Labytnangi, located on the Yamal Peninsula in Russia, Kolesnik has found a talent within himself that many would love to have. He has the ability to picture a design in his head, turn it into a 3D model on his computer and then print it out on his Ultimaker 2 3D printer which he purchased a while back with the help of a friend.
Kolesnik has really begun to make a name for himself as a brilliant 3D artist, and in fact he recently had a company called REC contact him about creating a fully articulated robotic looking creature for an upcoming exhibition. Up for the challenge, Kolesnik spent about 3 weeks designing his creation using Autodesk 3ds Max. Then, using his Ultimaker 2, he printed out the 36 cm tall figurine over a span of about 2 weeks.
The figurine, which is called Titan-rec, features all movable parts and was printed using all Russian-made filament. As you can see, the details shown in his creation are quite extraordinary, especially when you consider it was printed on an affordable desktop 3D printer.
Kolesnik, who is a 3D artist, has also done much more in creating toy concepts, robots, 3D graphics and art for video games, and other types of high level modeling. He is always looking for new, interesting projects to work on, and it seems as though each new creation he releases is a little better than the last.
