Return of the 3D Printed Skull

Sculptor Joshua Harker hit a home run with his first Kickstarter project, Crania Anatomica Filigre: Me to You, which he claims is now the site's most-funded sculpture project. The filigreed, 3D printed skull was admittedly not without its charms. Now he's following that up with a more ambitious project, Anatomica di Revolutis, which Harker tells us means "anatomy of the revolution." In this work a newly-designed skull takes center stage, surrounded by phoenix wings and a dangling "crooked cairn." Nifty enough but what makes the project even more interesting is that these three components are available separately via a range of Kickstarter pledges, as well as related items, such as a skull chain, origami and papercraft skull puzzles, t-shirts and even an iPhone case. With a modest goal of $500, Harker seems to have done it again by amassing almost $30,000 in pledges to date.

Interesting - thanks. I've been watching this 3D technology the past year or so. No doubt this is going to be very huge very soon. Keep an eye on DDD if you're an investor.

It's getting more and more interesting, the technology isn't at all consumer ready but for businesses and medical it's a great idea. I've read scientific articles that they're trying to discover bio-safe materials to create replacement parts for the body (cartilage, bone, etc) exciting!

They were, as part of a Kickstarter project. Check out the artist's site, no doubt they'll be available for sale from there at some point.
