Mark Head Coffee Mug
by markthebruce, published
In the images you can see me using it as an M&M bowl, a cup-a-soup mug, and a coffee mug in which I've drawn a Blue Brain to celebrate the Blue Brain Project getting European funding.

I have no idea how to use the programmes you mentions but I need to create something similar for a project about mental health. one difference is I want to make it out of glass. do you think it is possible or shall i find someone to do it? is it difficult to learn the whole process?
(1) I imported the virtual 3D head model (.stl) into Tinkercad and used the basic modeling tools to first add a curved handle and then progressively hollow out the inside by using various curved sphere and cylinder shapes as "negative spaces" to delete material . . . while being very careful to leave adequate wall thickness for the mug.
(2) I didn't print in plastic first - but should have. Shapeways didn't scale down the measurements. It was simply my own error in measuring other mugs and scaling the head to those dimensions and then sending it off for printing before double-checking how big the physical object would actually be. It was my own fault!

I definitely wanted to make this a functional model that I could use; it did turn out smaller than what I imagined however.
You can see obvious limitations to the resolution output of the Kinect.
