Great print bro. Love your work, can I hire you to do some design work for me?

Hi there

this looks really great, amazing.

Espacially the first picture.

Which filament you used for it?
Was it a metal one?
It looks so shiny and golden

Thanks Matt! The metal one was printed by the folks at Shapeways. It's gold plated steel and is available for sale at https://www.shapeways.com/shops/liquidbuddha for $77. Other materials are available for different prices.

Thanks :-) So it´s still printed with a metal filament and then it was polished right? For example in a tumbler.
Because I don´t wanna buy it, I like do make my own one ;-)

I don't believe the FDM method used by Shapeways for steel is with filament. it's a high end machine, probably using a powder which is then impregnated with steel.. not sure... it's then "enrobbed"
In gold, which I think is their term for gold plating.

If I were you and wanted a similar result with your home ABS/PLA printer, I would get it as smooth as possible and then perhaps use a satin or gloss gold paint for a finish.

Would LOVE to see how it turns out, so I hope you post a picture! Good luck.
