From a 3D-Print to a 2D-Print

I know, it sounds crazy, 
but on the other side it offers a lot of possibilities to people who works with letter-press.

Here the both printing machines:
left: a Replicator-Clone, right: an ADANA 8x5

Yes, I know, I had to flip the "cliché" horizontal ;-)
The design is made by "Blender" (my first trial),
printed with the 3D-Printer (+ grid)
high = 1.7 mm, mount on a plate of wood.

The Print.
After sanding the cliché (above) the print comes better...

My alternative is etching copper. That is more exactly, but needs more time.
So it can be an option to print the cliché with a 3D-Printer...

(You are invited to write here about your ideas, experiences.)

Sunday, Mai 18th: int. MuseumsDay

"Networking" is the theme of the international museums-day 2014.
Our network begins in the "Museum Point Jaune", St.Gallen, Switzerland.
Whats will happen then:
For our visitors we have the unique "Klappbügel-Presse" prepared + some cliches.
Now they can print (letterpress) their graphic by choosing the pattern (cliches), the colors (CMYK) in the size of 8 cicero on paper 5 x 5 cm.
After, they will frame one print, take it to their home and take a photo of this inside their flat (or at an other famous location).
The pic will be send to the blog and published there together with a scan of the grafic.
The blog is open for discussion, suggestions,...

So, if you in St.Gallen at the int. Museums-Day, feel free to visit the Point Jaune - Museum, Linsebühlstr.77.

CU? ...would be nice
