Hi All, just received my first ever 3D print from Shapeways, it's a head sculpt I made to see the possibility for hand sculpt substitution.

The product is nice but I think this printing technology suits large piece like 1:4 more...

And I don't know the cause of surface discontinuity on the piece, part of the surface is smooth and glossy but part of the surface matte and rough...

But I like my 3D print!~

Nice job! You have great detail in the render and the print. Is that the FUD material?

The rough part is due to the support material, which is in the process of being examined to see how to fix it. I saw this guy at an Orioles game lol. Well a cardboard standup from Die Hard.

Very nice sculpt and likeness of Bruce! Did you hollow out the head and approximately how much did it cost to have printed?

I truly hope Shapeways gets the surface roughness problem solved ASAP; there is such great potential for selling small detailed figurines, models etc. in FUD, but the variable surface quality will probably not be acceptable to the average consumer at this point.

Thanks for support~ and yes this is mcclane from die hard.

In fact the FUD has already captured quite a lot of detail from my original sculpt and I know it's just not possible to print those skin texture and small wrinkles in this size. I will need to sand and to regain some skin texture so that i can use for further casting or mod.

This is a hollow sculpt that I already pushed in a hole in zbrush, not really accurate but at least this me saved nearly 100% more material compare with solid sculpt. The final piece costed me about fifty dollars.

Here's the sculpt with a layer of primer.

This would be awesome on an old Marx Johnny West doll body.

Replace the head of Robert Conrad.
