This particular project is a replica of the Cenotaph for Professor Walsh.
The most complicated part of this replica is that the Cenotaph does not have any 90* angles. Although I did not find any documentation that specified the angles of this monument, I did find fairly detailed sketches. I utilized the sketch to create my own sketch.
Instead of extruding the monument upwards, I chose to extrude it sideways and then intersect another sketch so that it has the 87-89* angles.
After figuring out how to make the main body, adding the flag poles and wreath was fairly straight forward. I used the torus option for the three wreaths. For the flagpoles I extruded three circles from the flag platform on each side.
Once the main structure was taken care of I decided to add some brick texture as well as the engraving “The Glorious Dead.”
My initial product ended up being too tall to print in Cura, so I had to size it down to 90% of the original size. With that scale the print stats are posted below.
