Mash me the head of Stephen Colbert

During last night's Stephen Colbert segment on MakerBot 3D printers, Bre Pettis revealed that the MakerBot Industries had made a high-quality 3D scan of Stephen Colbert's head and posted it on Thingiverse for remixing. Here's the official announcement, along with a swell Colbert/eagle mashup and several others for your pleasure (shown here: Colberthulhu by tbuser).
And, if you're running short of ideas or want to see what other people have done with their 3D printers, don't forget to check out - an free online website for sharing designs. That's where you'll find Stephen Colbert's head, which you can print your own copy of, or, better yet, add on to another design! We call these mash-ups, just like when a musician combines two songs into one.

This is a great way to get started with 3d modeling, and we want you to do it. Grab Stephen's head and paste it onto something else! If it's related to bears, bald eagles, America, or Freedom, all the better. We've had a few friends get the ball rolling, but there's plenty to be done yet.

What, you're not watching? It's time to mash up Stephen Colbert! « MakerBot Industries:


    1. I do not want to feel Colbert’s multi-hexagonal textured alien barbed penis inside of me. I don’t like it.

  1. Am I the first to notice that Stephen Colbert is the greatest creational excuse since “Bob?”

  2. “High-quality?” The eyes look like they’ve been gouged out. Perhaps he should have removed his glasses first.

  3. Would be nice to provide the data in a format other than .stl It’s just not that common to work with in most 3-D applications.

  4. I think I need a pair of Colbert bookends!
    (Not for organizing books, but for “ending” books. Damned facts.)

    “Truthiness is truth that comes from the gut, not books.”
    “I am no fan of books. And chances are, if you’re reading this, you and I share a healthy skepticisn about the printed word.”

    -Stephen Colbert
