This a 3D scan of a bust of Albert Einstein from the Usher Gallery and The Collection in Lincoln in the UK.
The bronze bust was made in 1930 by Artur Loewenthal and 3D scanned by Oliver Laric in 2013.
I wanted to make the 3D model just as big as the original bronze bust (34 cm in height). I also fixed some minor issues.
I decided to make the scan hollow and cut it in pieces to save material and time. I filled the printed halves with gypsum to add weight.
The original file can be found here:
The original model was too big for my printer so I made the STL hollow and cut it into 9 pieces (Einstein Bust Pieces.zip).
After printing I glued parts 1 to 4 together and 5 to 9. I put some letters on the parts that match but it is hardly a puzzle so forget them.
I used acetone to smooth the 2 parts and filled them with gypsum plaster so the bust weighs more like a real statue.
After gluing everything together and some sanding and priming (a lot) I coated the model with copper, gold silver and flat black to get a bronze look.
