James Bruton is a Youtuber who delights us with “extra” creations. This week, the maker is creating a big hype with his gigantic 3D printed human sculpture. Acknowledged in the Guinness World Record, the sculpture was 3D printed with a Lulzbot 3D printer.
After a 3D scanning of his body, Portsmouth’s designers and engineers helped James to create a 3D digital mesh with appropriate proportions, which could be used to start printing the sculpture.
This printing required 500 hours within two months. Two 3D printers were used to facilitate the printing of parts simultaneously as well as 50 kg of filament.
“I really enjoyed working towards the Guinness World Records title for this – I’m thinking about doing another one in the future”, said Bruton. ”It took two months and a lot of printing time to achieve the record so I’m pleased to have finally got my hands on it!”
