We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
At long last, everyone in the world (ok everyone who has access to a 3d printer) can have their own bust of America's greatest entertainer and statesman, Stephen Colbert.
Even better, you can use this model and your favorite 3d modeling software to add Mr. Colbert's face to objects which were formerly lacking in Colbert heads, like bannisters, umbrella handles, toothpaste squeezers, and rabbits. (To name a few.)
Made with a Polhemus 3d scanner at the Colbert set on 6/6/2011.
"HighRes" versions are very high-res. The LowRes and LowerRes versions still have a lot of detail and are more reliable, so start with those.
This bust should print well on a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic even without support material.
Check out http://www.polhemus.com/ for more information about their great scanners.
The head of Stephen Colbert by Colbert is licensed under the Public Domain license.
So what's this mean?
We're sure Colbert would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
