Before leaving for home... and hopefully finding a higher resolution print of Peyton Duncan's Chow waiting for me... I managed to capture some better images of the printed model from my RapMan 3.2 printer.
Nobody is trying to fool anybody. An extrusion printer doesn't cost $400,000. Neither does it perform like one. But, it still does a very credible job at rendering what one creates. And, frankly, I'm quite pleased with the result at .250 vertical resolution. So, here are some images.
NOTE: Any lint, etc. comes from the fact that this poor guy spent all day in my pocket. :)

For these next two images, which only appear to be identical, I raised the F-Stop for each to try to get a bit more depth of field. I think it helped.

Note for Peyton... I KNOW that is a DIME in the image and not a quarter as you asked. How in the world did you think I might have a quarter to my name left while I'm spending all my money having fun buying tools and materials for my RapMan??? LOL!
Note for everyone else... Peyton is my nephew. And, I have a LOT of respect for his work and for him personally. Both Peyton and my artist daughter Cheryl continue to amaze me with their talent. Here is just a sample of Cheryl's beautiful sculpture that got me interested into digital photography and 3D printing in the first place.

I'm surrounded by geniuses and loving it!
Now... I gotta get out of here to see what awaits me at home... a mess or a Chow!! :)
