    So here are a few of the prototypes (there will be a total of 10 different models of them). Sorry, haven't gotten them into color yet (they will be duals) the one at the bottom is a tube of blood open and will be in transparent red with white tube/cap... Can you guess what they are?

    The frog Henry, you, asserting dominance over Gabriel, that if she doesn't follow orders she'll end up like Kristin?

    It's for visualization of blood group inheritance, isn't it?

    Hint for those who have read the old testament: there are 10 of them, and i'm making them in the spring...

    @Kick2box you are correct. These are going to be nameplates for each person at the Passover Seder (we have about 35 people over) and in the past have done creative paper ones (and once my laser cutter is up, then maybe next year will be laser cut cards) but this year decided to have plagues as printed objects. So for that picture we have Blood, Frogs and Locust so far. Darkness I am figuring all black with the name with a shade over it...

    It's a pretty nerdy crowd, since I think the lowest degree amongst the adults is a masters, almost all with doctorates... There is about half being the tech crowd (engineering/CompSci) and the other half is medical (physicians/genetics) with a few of us spanning both groups...

    I had another thought, there are a couple of plagues that won't make pleasant 3D modelling!!!:eek:

    My daughter has offered to model death of the first born son with her brother. However with her, you never find the body, so not sure that will work... o_O

    In the ongoing plague list, we now have death of livestock (this is a prototype, printed really small). Did a plane cut to make the tail end sit flat so that he rests on ears/butt flat:

    OK so the project is finished, despite having some severe Z-axis issues which only got worked out at the last minutes, so there are some upper surface flaws (which in real life are harder to see since these are not huge). I'm done (and only did 7 of the plagues because I was short on time) mostly because I want to start printing the Titan parts and I of course have 30 freakin people showing up for dinner tomorrow for Passover, so here are the Plague "Placecards":

    (We didn't do all the plagues, just because time...)

    Blood (red transparent PLA, looks a nice deep red in real live):

    Boils (Entwined):
    [​IMG]

    Darkness (Black PLA/PHA) Note how the shadow sits over the pyramid - shot with side light overhead light. The capstone of the pyramid didn't quite work as intended...
    [​IMG]

    Slaying of the Firstborn (gray PLA/PHA) (that's a #1 lying on the pedestal) - these kept falling over or the knife tore off so was happy just to get them done):

    Frogs (Green PLA/PHA):

    Death of Livestock (White PLA/PHA):

    Locust (Green PLA/PHA):

    Original plan was blood to be a dual print, with a opened blood tube (about half the folks at passover are docs) but just couldn't get the dual working well enough, and way more time...
