Irish paper 3D printer manufacturer, Mcor, has created a full-colour model of President Obama.
The model is based on a 3D scan of the president, that has been taken during a project led by a Smithsonian team last year, when Barack Obama has become the first president to have a 3D printed bust created for the National Portrait Gallery. Using the MCor Iris HD printer, full-colour photorealistic objects can be produced, as Mcor explains:
“Full, photorealistic-colour 3D printing, like the one shown here [image below] on the right, communicates infinitely more than monochrome 3D printing, such as facial details, shading, textures and even personality, all of which result in a far more realistic bust than the monochrome 3D print on the left. And, Mcor full-colour 3D printing does so at 10-20% of the cost of other 3D printing technology and in a much safer and more eco-friendly manner.”
