Gâchettes

2012
Wood and plastic (FDM 3D printing)
50 x 50 x 83 cm (individually with base : 15 x 15 x 33 cm)

Gâchettes (Triggers) is a set of 9 small articulated sculptures, inspired by archaeological pieces, triggers of Chinese crossbows (dating from the 2nd century BC). I modeled each of them in a rudimentary way, as a 3-part object articulated on an axis. I then printed them on a “DIY” 3D printer, a Mendel Prusa (see also the RepRap project).
