Suppose there was a person who was willing to spend any amount of money to 3D print a model's face and bust as realistically as possible. How realistic could you do it and how much would it cost? Asking for a friend.
>>674752>How realistic could you do itHow realistic could I make it? Not very... How realistic could a professional artist make it? Pretty realistic I'd guess, but they'd probably also have to be some kind of chemist to know what materials to use as analogs for human tissues.>how much would it cost?I don't know... Probably a lot seeing as the tree dee printers able to make something that large are all half million dollar machines.
>>674752I would do it but you would need to pay me a comfortable wage that would support me for a few months while I learned to sculpting and some 3d fundamentals so I would be ready to work on the end design.Then I would need cash upfront for the best quality 3d printer I think would be able to print the model. They are getting cheaper but would estimate around $2k especially if you want it lifesize and in one model.Actually it would be more like $4k.So I could do it but I would need $3k a month indefinitely while I learn to model, but I think I could manage this in about 6months if I focused 100% on the task at hand. Then the printer cost of course, or we could outsource the printing.Lmk if you are keen.
>>674752just buy a rubber doll, wanker
>>674752>>674764I would take this guy up on his offer honestly, he seems legit.
>>674764Well that's pretty expensive lmao.
>>674752Depends of the model. With photogrammetry you can scan a bust with pretty much accuracy for nearly nothing: see skanect. Add a few days of cleaning/retopo and it can be done realistically within weeks. Given 15$ per hour of work for a decent CG artist you could have it done for 1000$. For printing, the cheaper the less accurate. Don't buy a 3d printer, you can send the model and receive a polished plastic figurine for 50$ on internet.

>>674928>its a lot easier to fake breathing if you hide the face or better yet keep the doll lying in a fetal position in your bedThat's an awfully esoteric piece of knowledge, anon. Care to grace us with an explanation as to how you acquired it?
