The artwork promoting this downloadable 3D printer file from ArtStation.
Here is my take on a beautiful 3D print sculpture of Edgar Allan Poe by Mauro Misiewicz. I happened across this model on a site called ArtStation
which provides a number of 3D print files you can download for a fee, in this case, $25.00.
The scene it depicts suggests that
Poe's has perhaps just ascended from “The Pit and the Pendulum”, with a Raven on his shoulder and a docile Black Cat waiting on the platform to greet him. The dungeon stairway is crumbling a bit to reveal the skeletal corpse of a woman within,
presumably the hapless victim from the short story “The Black Cat” along with a number of skulls strewn about the base.
downloaded print file was in ten parts which turned out to be a plus for a couple reasons: 1.) I wasn't forced to accept the original size because I could change it's ratio in the printer slicing software and 2.) using different printer types, I could make
some extremely detailed parts should the need arise.
The actual size of the completed scene was about 7” (180 mm) tall
but, me being me, decided I wanted a larger version so I increased it to maximum size that both my printers could handle which turned out to be 900%. Yes, 900%.
