HippoDrive by humphreyhippo


Feels like forever since I last picked up a camera but my other half wanted a shot of his masterpiece. This is the top half of an external case he's 3D-printed for an internal optical drive.
The hippo pattern is created from an SVG file I made in Blender which he imported into OpenSCAD and embedded into the case shape. It's printed with three different filaments in turn and took ages. :)
Really tricky thing to try take a photograph of - spent ages trying to get backlighting through it to work. It has one of those odd surface patterns which never looks sharp when zoomed in.
You’re speaking in tongues again 😁... but it sure looks cool!

All the above is beyond me, I wouldn't have a clue about its creation or the photography!
