Help Crowdfund Bathsheba Grossman's Six Foot Sculpture

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

A crowdfund effort is being coordinated to get one of Bathsheba Grossman's pieces, Rygo made as the largest 3D Print in North America.  We recently profiled Grossman's work in our post.  

Everyone in this campaign truly believes that 3D printing will shake up everything you thought you knew about design, construction, manufacturing, architecture, sculpture….you name it. They hope you feel the same. Every contribution is going towards a leap in technology that happens only once a decade.

From Indiegogo:
3D printing, shipping and installing the Rygo will cost close to $10,000. This includes Custom Duties and Taxes. 3D printing the smaller versions of the Rygo, the Leafychain, the Rochain or the Niche are a significant expense that must be covered. If we don't meet our target, we can print a smaller Rygo. But size matters! I don't think a smaller Statue of Liberty would have had the same impact as it did. Nor a smaller Eiffel Tower. And it certainly wouldn't be "the largest" 3D print in North America. The DShape is a 6 x 6 x 8 meter 3D printer.... so if we exceed our target, we might print a bigger Rygo!
