Not to defend the aggression from the commenters above, but it can be frustratingÂ for people who post regularly and don't get featured to be upstaged by someone who gets featured by just walking through aÂ museumÂ with a camera, and throw some photos into 123d catch. When I read the two comments above, what I heard was "Ugh, not again!" It's an ongoing pet peeve, nothing at all against you personally. Also, people are always going to assume the main photo for your Thing is a printed product until they read otherwise.
This is really cool, though. Thank you for sharing it and congrats on getting featured.
I don't mind the occasional unprintable object - things that are scanned/designed, but not printed, are a way that people without printers can contribute. For example, there are designs from designers who are excited about the idea of 3D printing, but don't have a printer, so they upload designs here for others to try. That's what I did, before I (finally) got my 3D printer, so I can't object to others doing the same. And, if nothing else, the scan is great raw material for others to work with.
What confuses me a bit about this Thing is the naming - it is specifically named "Printable" and isn't a "work in progress", but there's no evidence that it was actually printed. It looks printable - it has a level base, is solid, etc., though it's got some severe overhangs that might be a challenge - the nose, chin, and a few other places look like they'll be "droopy". Technically, it's all "printable" with some printer (e.g. a commercial grade 3D printer with support material), but I'm not sure it's printable with home 3D printers.
Still, cool scan!
Yes, it is fully printable and I have made copies of it, this thing has now been updated with a photograph of a 3D Print. I simply did not upload a photograph of the final print because I didn't have a camera handy when I uploaded the initial thing.Â
All of the files I have uploaded are 100% printable and the files are pretty good. However, you may have varying mileage on your final object due to printer quality/ability and settings. Support probably will help.Â
In the future, I'd suggest being slightly less passive aggressive when commenting on a freely shared object in a community driven website.
