Another furniture of the stone temple though I don’t know if is correct catalog the lectern and the stoup like furniture.
In past I had already tried to create a lectern, sober and generic, but I did not consider it suitable for the stone temple, so I remade it.
Here the comparison from the old one and the new
The 3D model
For almost every piece I used the mirror modifier, apart some part like the book, splittting it in 4 pieces.
At the base I put 2 cubes. The pedestal is also a cube, with some cylinder at the vertex as decorations.
The “desk” is composed by 2 pieces, both from cubes, the “desk” and its support. The latter is needed to don’t let empty spaces, that create problems during the 3D printing.
In the back I added 2 candlesticks, with their candles, all made with cylinders, with some spheres as decorations.
The flame is also a sphere, stretched using the proportional editing.
The book is made of cubes, both the cover and the pages. To create the swell of the pages I used some loop (ctrl+R).
And the work is finished.
The 3D printing
Since the model is really small, and I wanted all details, I set the height of the layer to 0.1mm, without using supports.
I didn’t use them because I already knew I did not need them, and to reduce the flaw caused by them. Anyway some smear remained.
I tried to remove the smears, but I did not have the suited tools,and this is the result. From the photos it’s seems is a big problem, but actually they are not noticed.
For the filament I chose the grey one, because it’s a neutral color and it don’t create problems while painting.
For painting I used Citadel paint:
- Mechanicus standard grey
- Abaddon black
- Rhinox hide
- Ceramite white
- Yriel yellow
- Evil sunz scarlet
with a bit of gold from Tamiya.
As usual I did not painted with some techniques, but I tried to add some detail with gold, and some “write” on the book pages.
For the flames I paint with a yellow paint, with the tip red.
