Today the Smithsonian announced that it has put the first ever 3-D printed Presidential portrait on view.
3D Systems is proud to have worked with the Smithsonian on the printing of President Obama’s 3D portrait. Autodesk software was used to design the printable digital models, and 3D Systems did the printing of the life mask and bust of the President using its Selective Laser Sintering printers—industrial grade devices that produce high-resolution 3-D prints.
