Hello Everyone:

The very first 3D-printed bust of a sitting U.S. president made its debut.  The bust of President Obama was created by a Smithsonian-led team of 3D-digital-imaging specialists, Autodesk and 3D Systems, in collaboration with the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies. It took two different technologically sophisticated 3D documentation processes to generate the data needed to create this portrait.

The Behind-the Scenes video below is fascinating.  I came across this story in December when I was blogging about the 2014 Kennedy Center Honorees and found the another fascinating story regarding the first ever 3-D Christmas Ornament.
