3D Designer Spotlight – gvrocksnow

We’re starting off our pinshape Designer Spotlight series by shining the light on our first designer of the week, Pavan Ganti, aka gvrocksnow. This 3D designer is known for his sci-fi inspired miniatures from video games and T.V. shows. Realizing that he can apply his gaming skills to 3D printing, he became fascinated transforming fantasy into reality. He puts a lot of work and dedication into his creations and we want to share his story.

Q: Hi! We love your work on pinshape, tell us a little about yourself.

I’m Pavan Ganti. I’m from India. I’m 23 years old. In my free time, I play guitar, read books, listen to music, play video games, watch movies, and anime and check out all kinds of art.


Q: What originally sparked your interest in 3D printing?

I initially learnt 3d modeling because of my interest in making video games. When I found that these skills can be put to use in making actual physical objects, I was extremely excited and so began creating miniatures for 3d printing.

Q: What made you want to share your artwork with pinshape, Inc.?

Pinshape seems to be a very good site to showcase my art and get my ideas across to people all over the world.

Q: What piece of artwork have you created that you are extremely proud of?

Out of the shapes I have created so far, I like the Breenship and the B5 Omega Class Ship because most because a lot of effort went into creating them and they came out extremely detailed.




Q: What do you want people to see/take away from your artwork?

I want my artwork to inspire awe in people.

Q: What inspires you to create your artwork?

Seeing other designers and artists out there creating great artwork is the main drive behind my work. Also great music frequently makes me want to let out all the emotions inside me in the form of my art.


Q: How did you get the idea to create work with 3D printing? When did you first experiment with it?

I was searching the web for freelancing jobs when I found a posting asking for a designer to create HO scale train models. It was then that I got into 3d printing.

Q: What do you hope to create in the future with 3D printing?

I hope to create more miniatures along with gadgets that are both aesthetically pleasing and practically useful.

Q: What will it take for 3D printing to go mainstream?

Lower printer costs and increasing print quality will make 3d printing viable as a mainstream industry.Improvements in CAD software will lower the barrier to people wanting to create 3d models which will play a major factor in making 3d printing go mainstream.


Q: What advancements would help you get more out of 3D printing?

The ability to automatically resize an object from one scale to another without affecting wall thickness would be very useful and save designers a lot of time and effort.

Thanks for letting us interview you, Pavan. Can’t wait to see what other awesome miniatures and creations you come up with! Check out the rest of gvrocksnow’s work in his portfolio.
