Stuffed Panda

Canon have a website where you can download and print 3D animals on paper for free.
I tried out a small rabbit, quite fiddly but cute. I thought it maybe interesting to try an animal with fabric instead so I increased the size and tried it out. It was quite tricky as the fabric frayed, so I tried it with this panda using evolon which doesn't fray and stitched it together rather than glueing. I painted the features on. I'd only printed out the head to see how it went but decided to continue with the body....but I must have written down the size I'd increased it by wrongly... it wasn't going to fit the head. So I just made a simple body out of a spoiled t-shirt. His face his cute but could do with a bit more stuffing, as for his body....poor thing.

  1. What a fun project. They talk a lot in Japan of 3-D printers, this is a much more down to earth way of printing something to become 3-dimensional!
