Tree Support Critter

One of the by-products of 3d printing in FDM can be these organic-looking forms which are generated as support structures for the actual model.

Usually I just discard them, but from time to time I get a piece that I think might be worth turning into something else. This one (I forget which model it came off) I've glued to a steel washer base and painted to represent some some of subterranean fungoid creature, or maybe an underwater coral thing, or maybe just a bit of weird terrain.

As usual, we also have Sergeant Measureby with his Spear of 5mm Increments for scale.

  1. Nice use of some waste material. It reminds me of something from a Bjork music video XD
