Artist Micah Ganske has released several new projects on Thingiverse and allows all Makerbot users to replicate his sculptures for themselves, under a Creative Commons license.
Following Micah Ganske's solo exhibition Tomorrow Land at RH Gallery he offers project James Tiberius Kirk #1, its variation James Tiberius Kirk #2, and Shuttle R.I.P. on Thingiverse for free download. These are sculptures from the show. Tomorrow Land is a collection of paintings and sculptures from an ongoing series in which Ganske depicts landscapes of toxic and abandoned areas of the United States blanketed with ominous shadows: what the artist refers to as symbols of "aspirational technology." The James Tiberius Kirk features the silhouette of William Shatner cut out of a landscape, and the shuttle silhouette is cut out of a cemetery.
Ganske recommends the users using Natural ABS color to 3D print above sculptures because it has a high-end visual effect. Since it is open source you can download the models on Thingiverse, as long as you keep your replicas of his work non-commercial. Ganske also offers both supervised and signed pieces of his work in a limited edition for collectors.
