Thanks to an elite crowd of 3D printing community participants (including many from the Adafruit community!), the George Crowdsourcington Bust was completed and delivered in time for the New York 3D Print Show, where it will be on view at the entrance to the show for the duration of the event.

Here are a few behind the scenes photos of the assembling of the final piece — put together with E6000 adhesive “and clamps and clamps and clamps” using a coordinate system that helped organize what was glued together first.
From Todd Blatt: “The coordinate system helped a lot. I grouped all the y1s and all the y2s…. And made layers. Front to back. And assembled the large layers when each was done.”

We are working to build a full 1:1 scale copy of a statue in the style of Giuseppe Ceracchi’s odd neoclassical “Bust of George Washington” (1791-1792).

To this end, we have collaborated with Direct Dimensions in Baltimore to create a micron-resolution professional 3D scan of the original statue that is currently on display at the Walters Art Museum during the restoration of Baltimore’s Washington Monument….
