Saint Petersburg

The objective of this project was to design and print a building of our choice, I decided to do a rendition of Russia’s prized Saint Petersburg. The detailed archways and spiral tower caps drew me in along with the challenges of printing these features. I wanted to see the printer’s ability to print different slopes hence a varying design of the spiral tops. As well as it’s ability to print unsupported structures.

Due to time constraints the intricate detail of the architecture wasn’t able to be fully captured. An image of the completed design

A detailed look at the upper portion of the design, notice the differences between the spirals. I am very interested in how the printer handles the arch ways.
General dimensions of the final product, overall a height difference exists between the design and final product due to design changes for proportions.
