The sculpture consists of five sub-tracks which gives approximately 15 meters of rail made of 3mm brass rod, a total of 106 3D-Printed pieces is in the sculpture. Estimated time for the design in Google SketchUp was approximately 150 hours.
The construction has taken place during the two years when I had time to spare. Everything is manual bent, welded and adjusted in to the smallest detail.
Estimated construction time in total was approximately 250 hours.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
