Stratasys is bullish about 3D printing! The advancements in the additive manufacturing industry are creating opportunities for innovation in so many fields: medical, aerospace, fashion, sports and more.
To celebrate the widespread adaption of 3D printing, Stratasys used their Objet PolyJet technology to make a bull model. Our model is based on the iconic statue and tourist hotspot in the Wall Street area of lower Manhattan, considered the seat of the American financial market.
The original “Charging Bull” sculpture is 3,200 kilograms of bronze, but the Stratasys bull is a sleek, hand-held version. It was produced on a highly precise Stratasys Objet Connex multi-material 3D Printer, which allowed the designer to highlight the details in the face, tail, feet and musculature. Demonstrating the multi-material capabilities of the Connex line of 3D printers, the tail and horn are printed in VeroWhite, the text and logo in VeroBlack, and the body combines the two into a range of gray digital materials. The single print run required to produce this model was a snap! (We’re going to keep him away from china shops, though.)
