I was turned upon a new method of laser printing 3D sculptures.  This method cuts extremely thin pieces of cardboard with a laser and can accomplish wonderful detail.  Here's a link to a short article. A Beer Cup
http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/onepercent/2011/03/jacob-aron-technology-reporter.html

As well as a link to the creators website
http://www.michael-hansmeyer.com/

However, they are kinda pricey.

Reads really interesting. Ok, for now it is too expensive, but in the beginning all new technologies are.
Maybe in one or two years this is a possible and payable way to produce 3d fract art.

I wonder how sturdy they are.  Do you suppose one could handle them without fear of wasting $1500?

My guess is that they are strengthened with epoxy or similar after the print, I know my 3D printed mandelbulb is...  afro

Ooh, very nice! smiley  How much did it cost to print yours, for comparison?
