Help assemble a 110-piece 3D-printed bust of George Washington

By the end of this weekend, one group of 3D makers wants to have completed a full-size replica of the bust of George Washington currently on display inside the Walters Art Museum.

Maker Todd Blatt explains the George Crowdsourcington project during Art Bytes project presentations Sunday.

The Washington bust being 3D scanned last week before the Art Bytes hackathon began on Friday.

But the statue they intend to create will be 3D printed, piece by piece, by makers through Baltimore city and, possibly, around the world.

Team George Crowdsourcington — one of 14 teams to present projects at the second Art Bytes hackathon at the Walters this weekend — broke up a 3D image of the George Washington bust into 110 separate, digital pieces, each tagged with specific coordinates.

On a separate website people can ask to print out one piece of the Washington bust, and are assigned a particular 3D-print file. The hope shared by the Crowdsourcington team is that within the week, all 110 pieces of the Washington bust will be printed and mailed to them — they provide a mailing address to where people who print out pieces can ship them — so that they can assemble a 3D replica of the Washington bust exactly to scale. (The coordinates act as build instructions for the Crowdsourcington team.)
