Polly wants a folly?

Topmod is an incredible program that allows you to take simple shapes and literally sculpt them into crazy, out of this world forms within a matter of minutes. I didn’t really have an exact design in mind, so after watching a youtube video of how to make a shot glass, I got inspired to work with the rind tool.

What turned out was some sort of cave structure with a bunch of chicken drumstick legs poking out. Then I took the form into Rhino to clean up and manipulate in order to create an interior.
I really liked the form. However the surfaces were not thick enough to be put through the 3D printer and I had to start again. I did manage to get some cool renders though…
