About Project

Chrysolophus amherstiae, a.k.a. lady Amherst's pheasant, is a threatened pheasant species. The male would spread its ruff across their face and neck during courtship display. A museum ordered this model for their coming exhibition.
It has strong legs, long tail feathers, and a weird nuchal cape. To lessen the usage of supports and save the cost, we hollowed the models, 3D printed the birds and the bases separately. Resin models can show the size and look of wild animals from every angle.

Solution

  • Step 1:The 3D modeler builds the model in ZBrush. To make it look as detailed as possible, he carefully and conscientiously brushes all its feathers. Our engineer adds an insert structure on their feet and the base.
  • Step 2: The layer thickness of 0.05mm is enough for a 30 cm-tall model. Arrange the placement and add supporting structures in the slicing software. We set a 40% infill of its body and 100% infill of its legs. The tail feathers are thin and also apply 100% infill. To make the birds standing stably, we set an 80% infill of the base.
  • Step 3: After printing finish, we break the supports and rinse the models with IPA, the polish to remove marks. Color these two models would be more costly than color a small batch of models. So the client decides to paint it himself.
