Replicating Stephen Colbert

Recently I printed Stephen Colbert’s head on my MakerBot (in ‘John Boehner orange’ as someone in the comments on Flickr pointed out):

His chin needs a little cleanup #makerbot

and made a timelapse of the nearly 2 hour print process:

and then Cory Doctorow blogged about it on BoingBoing.net (thanks to Darren for submitting it).

Which then lead to my “A few weeks with a MakerBot…” post getting picked up by the Spanish version of Digg and over 30,000 hits in 24 hours to the post plus all kinds traffic to other posts and on Flickr.

Pretty cool couple of days around here.

Update: Check out what the guys at MakerBot did with their printed Colbert head:

So awesome!
