“If you meet the buddha on the road, combine, merge and extrude him.”

Awesome 3D printed buddha sculpture by David Hirmes.

I started to combine multiple copies of the Buddha model with simple shapes, using boolean operations. A “boolean operation” can take an object and add (“union”), subtract (“difference”), or intersect with another object.

After the model is finished, it gets printed on the Makerbot. The Makerbot builds the model one thin layer at a time by extruding melted plastic.
