Project Description

Portrait Bobblehead figurines for 3d printing. Digital sculpting from customers photo

The makign of portrait bobblehead figurines from customer’s photo. We sculpted it for 3Dsharzh.ru. Our task was to make 3d models of miniature bobbleheads from several photos of real people, so the head receives a portrait likeness to the original. Then 3Dsharzh.ru used our 3d models for 3d printing of bobbleheads using their FDM 3d printer and finished it through the manual processing and painting. 3D printed model subjected to the further processing – sanding, priming and painting. For ease of handling, the model divided into the body and the head.

A bobblehead, also known as a nodder, wobbler or bobble head, is a type of collectible toy. Its head is often oversized compared to its body. Instead of a solid connection, its head is connected to the body by a spring or hook[1] in such a way that a light tap will cause the head to bobble, hence the name.
