Has anyone tried using one of the online 3D printing services to produce real world hard copies of their GroBoto creations?
I see some Z-brush items over on the Shapeways site, so I imagine exporting a mesh from GroBoto and then working it in Z-Brush, then uploading THAT would work.
I haven't looked into this too much, that's why I ask. It looks like Shapeways has certain rules about the types of 3D models it can print. Something about "normals" being set up properly.
Here's a list of currently supported applications
And Here are a few items from the gallery. Some of the algorithmic stuff reminded me of GroBoto bot objects.
Ora Knot object
All Terrain Walker There's a picture here of the object next to an American 25cent piece to give an idea of scale and how well the tiny details print.
Another option to Shapeways would be to use a Maker Bot. I don't know enough about it to know if you could print GroBoto objects with it.
