Update: Here are new pictures of the final model on Thingiverse
Update 2: Made it to London Science Museum! â€ś3D: printing the futureâ€ť
Unfortunately i could not find a single vector graphic or 3D model anywhere. There are articles about the history of the graphics,Ă‚Â Peter Saville’sĂ‚Â artworkĂ‚Â andĂ‚Â PSR B1919+21. I even tried to visualizeĂ‚Â PSR B1919+21‘s waveforms. But in the end i spend an evening tracing the waves by hand while watching ESC.
The Processing sketch didn’t create a manifold 3D model and i couldn’t fix it in time. Thus i rewrote the sketch in order to export DXF layers and extruded them in OpenSCAD. Now there’s a printable STL on Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:92971
The print is still not perfect. Skeinforge did a much better job than MakerBot slicer. Maybe the white PLA filament itself was the problem.
