This is actually a photoscan of a bust of a Russian poet Mayakovski. The original is located in central Moscow. It’s funny but the bust and the museum are embedded in a newly build former KGB buildings. The museum is actually located in KGB!

I just liked the sculpture which is quite brutal. I like Mayakovskiy as well.

Since Mayakovski committed a suicide in 1930 ( I could be mistaken with a date), I made auxiliary model with poor guy’s head blowing away. I am afraid tiny scull connectors may not be possible to replicate.


I made few photos, processed them at my3dscanner.com, edited a mesh in Meshlab. I could do it in Photofly, but my3dscanner makes a denser and better point clouds (it depends on a model though). Hypr3D is very good as well, their texture feature and a viewer are the best, but it is less important if you need to build a doable model.

I'm so pleased that someone made a Mayakovsky model! He's one of my favorite poets. I'm currently doing my undergrad thesis on him. I look forward to having his glowering visage sitting on my desk to remind me to stay on task!

1930 was indeed the year of his suicide, though I feel compelled to point out that he shot himself in the heart, not the head. It's been speculated that he wanted to preserve his beauty in death. But the model of his skull breaking open metaphorically fits some of his most famous verses quite well, I think. "???????/????/????????/???????? ???? ? ??????!" Thanks again for uploading this awesome model!

Took eight hours on my Cupcake, worked great!

Great! What is the material? I liked your color choice a lot!

Do you have a version that isn't shelled? Shelling is great for commercial printers to keep the cost down, but for hobby printers it's simpler to keep it solid.

You are right. Originally I intended to test it with Shapeways that's why. I have posted a solid model. Thanks!

Много фотографий пришлось сделать?

I made 12 photos. I couldn't get to the rear part so I used Meshmixer for sculpting.

Круто. Хочу еще Ленина и Сталина в коллекцию. ;)

С Лениным еще понятно (в Мавзолее лежит), но как быть со Сталиным? Ладно, будем над этим работать...
