Ryan sez, "I did a digital sculpture of the e-famous Success Kid and am selling 3D printed copies through Shapeways. Here's a video timelapse of the sculpting process."
saw that in the Shapeways email newsletter yesterday. good job.
I hope the kid is getting paid for this.
Take a meme, run it through a 3D printer – and profit!
I’d like you to do the goatse next. I could use it as a pencil holder.
Wow. I really enjoyed watching that actually.
Awesome. I think it’s a pretty good 3D model actually, though the 3D print looks kind of… not good at that small of scale. Think it’d benefit being printed at least twice as large from the pic posted on the guy’s page.
Exactly what I was hoping to learn, Marc…
Sculptris is free!
I think it’s the eyes. Eyes have been a problem for sculpture for 3000 years.
I am not disappoint.
But seriously, I am not. Some too-serious people lament how humans take wonderful tech and immediately use it for things that might be considered silly or trivial, like how photographic pornography was invented soon after the first pic, and how the interwebz is populated by penises and cats. But this is stuff people seem to really like and without this tech appealing to our baser-interests I doubt a lot of it would be around to be used for more noble pursuits.

Remember all those lawyers we buried at the bottom of the ocean?… Well…. Norhing… it’s just that… I think I can hear them churning.
Those are not lawyers at the bottom of the ocean you hear but the planet Venus.
No other sound has been as misidentified as the churning of lawyers at the bottom of the ocean more often than the planet Venus.
