A few months ago I had been contacted to create a Greek inspired trident for a fashion show by Ryan Amore. Originally I planned to have some of the components CNC cut on a router, but having just gotten a small stereolithography (SL) 3D printer I decided to go with 3D printed parts for everything, especially since some parts I planned would be tough to do on CNC. The forks and the diamond pommel would have been ideal on CNC in terms of time, but I wanted to experiment.

I always forget to take all the progress photos that I should, but I fortunately remembered to get some of each stage this time.

A few photos of some of the parts direct off the printer and with their supports removed.

The SL prints needed very little clean up at the resolution I chose to print at, some sanding then hit them with some filler primer and sanded again and that made them clean enough for a final primer layer before paint.
