World Animal Protection

08 Ⅷ 2014

For the Dutch branch of the World Animal Protection agency (previously WSPA), I was asked by Joris Tubergen of http://www.rooiejoris.nl to design a 3D Printable full scale Elephant!

The model was created entirely in Blender 3D. The Elephant was printed in 57 vertical columns. Joris inverted 5 Ultimaker 1 3D printers and mounted them on a special system of his own design.

The petition was signed by over 30.000 people. The first 20.000 had their names embedded in the actual skin of the Elephant with a special font created to mimic the folds in the skin of a real Asian Elephant.
