This "Mining Habitat Ring World" created by artist Micah Ganske was displayed at the Miami art fairs. Using his Makerbot Replicators, Ganske printed out 1,000 different parts in over 700 hours of print time, and then assembled these 1,000 parts to create this new sculpture.
Earlier this year, Ganske has released several new projects on Thingiverse and allows all Makerbot users to replicate his sculptures for themselves, under a Creative Commons license.
My sculptures are designed digitally and produced using a MakerBot 3D printer. Just as important to me as the amazing results that can be achieved with this exciting technology, is what it represents as a forward-looking technology. The dream of being able to replicate objects has always been a fixture of science fiction and I whole-heartedly embrace it as a way to create impossible artworks. - Micah Ganske
