This was a project I’ve been working on in the first half of december 2019. It was a christmas gift for my wife, who is a huge Stargate fan. I’ve modelled it completely in Blender over the course of about 3 weeks. A friend 3D printed it with resin for me then. This was my second 3D model that’s been printed. 😊
The Stargate and socket are two separate pieces. Together they have close to 900k triangles since I had to model all the details. The next step is to paint the 3D printed model as soon as my model colors arrive.
There a a lot of lessons learned: Some details are too small, some elements too thin and I forgot to cut out the chevron selectors in the socket. 🤦♂️ I only cut out the gate itself, so there was some filing done where the gate sinks into the socket. Also, I learned a lot regarding modelling efficiently.
