My Faceball model arrived a few days ago.
http://www.shapeways.com/model/112903/faceball.html
I love it. Surprised

It's printed in "White Detail".
This wasn't designed for Shapeways, it's an older model I cleaned up to test and it turned out great. Even his little veins and pustules on his back turned out nicely.

I believe the movie was Major League that had the smiling ball on the cover? The movie with Wild Thing. Anyways, the same day I was thinking of something like this, I see it on the front page. Beat to the punch again Razz.

It was originally a Mudbox test. but I had to delete and redo the interior to save costs. I also reduce the poly count to get it under the 500K limit.

@Youknowwho4eva
Haven't seen that film (Googles it) Uh no that's kinda different. This is probably most similar to a MadBall if you remember them.

Ah the good ole days. I think it's a shame this is at 3 stars. The weird thing, it had 3 votes and was at 3 stars. I gave it 5 and it stayed at 3 stars.

Thanks man Very Happy
It had 3 votes and was at 5 starts then the forth guy must have voted one star because it dropped to 3 stars Sad

We need to organise a drive to get people voting on models to get things fair ratings. Most models have so few votes one or two one star votes can trash your review.

That and it's nearly impossible to get back up to a 5 star ever.
