Help Alex print Stephen Colbert's head!!!

Head shotSome very exciting news in 3D printing!  One of the industry leaders was on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report a couple weeks ago.  They actually scanned his head and printed it out.  If you are not familiar with how the process works at all, you can watch the video on our home page (www.nwrapidmfg.com).

Anyway, this lead to a challenge, for designs using the scan of Stephen Colbert’s head.  I decided my contribution would be a hollow head, large enough to wear.  It is the absolute largest part we can build in our machinery!
