Picking Einstein's Brain

3D model description

A Candy dish. Makes a great gift. This is a remix of a model from the Lincolnshire museum based on the original sculpture. ( I hollowed it out and added the hinge to turn it into a candy dish. Those are mini m&ms in the bowl to give you an idea of scale. The hinge uses a piece of 1.75 mm filament as the hinge pin. For a finish I primed it and then applied a mix of real bronze powder and glue followed by a coat of varathane. The bronze had to be polished first. I'm sure it will look nice with just paint as well or leave it raw. This is my holiday gift to a number of friends and family. Maybe it will be yours too. There is a version on thingiverse that is free but the hinge is too large and awkward. It took some time to shrink it and get it right, hence the charge here.

3D printing settings

I printed in ABS at .4 resolution. It took about 7 hrs. The hinge took a little sanding between the joints to make it fit and also the pin hole had to be drilled to clean it up. It measures 16 cm high and the base is 6 x 6 cm. From the nose to the back of the head is 9 cm at its largest.
