An Incredibly Detailed 3D Printed Sculpture of a Giant Squid Attacking a Submarine

Front+View Squid

Designer Bin Li recently demonstrated his prowess with a MakerBot Replicator Z18 when he created an incredibly detailed sculpture of a giant squid attacking a submarine from an archived pattern on Thingiverse. Li explained his love for 3D printing in an interview with Bold Machines, a company founded by Bre Pettis that seeks to foster creativity in the world of 3D fabrication.

The journey started late. In fact I didn’t start art training until college, where I was studying computer science around 2005. But then weird enough, a close encounter with drawing and painting opened up a whole new world to me. I decided to be an artist to create and to fulfill my vision. 3D Animation and Games was the fuel of my passion, that’s why I went to Ringling College of Art and Design to study Computer animation. Since that, I worked as a 3d modeling and designing artist.
