Meet Nickis Fabbrocile, a versatile artist from Milan, Italy! His songs and performances let him reach out to the audience with what he calls an “ethereal world of his mind”. But since 2008, he has begun to express his visions through more tangible method. You are probably wondering, how is it connected to 3D printing?
Preparing the Canvas
The hardest part is a proper 3D printing of doll’s hands, feet and smaller joints. Fortunately, dimensional precision of Zortrax M200 stands up to the challenge and delivers the highest quality of print. Simone, responsible for preparation of models, prefers to use hot blades for excess material removal, while polishing is done with sandpaper. Certain designs require also using plastic stucco or two-component resin. Dolls must be perfect before handing them over to Nickis. He wouldn’t accept anything less.
