Plastic Arrow 3D Maze

6th November 2012

I find the concept of 3D printing really inspiring, and so I decided to try producing one of my 3D mazes in plastic at the Shapeways web site. I chose the Arrow 3D maze because it doesn't rely on colours to determine the rules.


The original model was constructed in the Mac modelling program Cheetah 3D, and the only change I had to make to it to make it suitable for 3D printing was to thicken the bars connecting the arrows.

The model makes an interesting conversation piece, and you can see it on Shapeways here:
