More fun things you can do with a scan of your face and 3D printing. (And some papier mache.)

Earlier this year I ran a drug trial on myself, in part to see just how rigorous such a thing could be. Here are the results.

Really need to do this, maybe in the fall when I have some spare time.

A Berlin art collective has taken to the streets, inking urban infrastructure and laying down shirts and tote bags to create a line of unique prints … their patterns directly lifted from city streets. Raubdruckerin (AKA Pirate Printer) press apparel to painted manhole covers, utility grates, etched signage, vents and other objects that have depth differences (and thus themselves to the relief-printing process, like woodcuts or letterpress).

I've been research the process of hand-casting type recently, and it's been kind of frustrating. Lots of general details, but not much juicy technical info that is web-accessible. The engravings from Diderot's Encyclopedia are great and all, but not always the best to work from.

I'm making my own 3D model so I can put up a proper set of mechanical drawings (and maybe get one 3D printed, for lols), but this is best set of photographs I have found so far. It shows how everything actually works together, with enough different angles that you can start working out relative sizes pretty reliably.
