    Description

    If you'd like to see more watch this video:

    This is an Ankh designed after an Ancient Egyptian Artifact. It's basically a golden key shape with some hieroglyphs imprinted into it. I created this in Fusion 360 using the sketch tool to trace the reference image I brought in.

    Then I printed it out on my Robo3D R1 printer. I printed it 0.3mm layer height because you don't gain much from smaller layer heights. No supports are needed.

    Then my wife sanded the crap out of it to get a smooth finish. Then she primed it, painted it gold using spray paint, then used a wash to darken the cracks of the hieroglyphs.

    Print Settings:
    Printer: Robo 3D R1
    Filament: Hatchbox PLA
    Layer Height: 0.3mm
    Infill: 15%
    Supports: No
    Raft: No
