3D printing is really moving along. Shapeways has had ceramic in its materials inventory for quite a while now… I was messing around with random modeling in ZBrush recently when this character appeared. I finished it off and just had to get it printed. Ceramic seemed to be the material of choice. Available for $21.55 ($6.50 shipping via UPS in Canada or USA) in my store on Shapeways.

This is something I’d designed quite a while ago but until Shapeways introduced a White Ceramic material there wasn’t another material I wanted to make it in. This image is a render and the actual sculpture would have a thick layer of ceramic glaze on it, but you get the idea here. It is 14.7cms wide and costs $95.
I have a short turntable video of this also that helps show the form better.
(For some weird reason the video doesn’t show up for me using Google Chrome – and Google owns YouTube! – but it does in Internet Explorer. If you have that problem here is the direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn0UNl_g22Y)
Sorry, not for sale.
Bucephalus or Buchephalas (Ancient Greek: Βουκέφαλος, from βούς bous, “ox” and κεφαλή kephalē, “head” meaning “ox-head”) (c. 355 BC – June 326 BC) was Alexander the Great’s horse and one of the most famous actual horses of antiquity. Ancient accounts state that Bucephalus died after the Battle of the Hydaspes in 326 BC, in what is now modern Pakistan, and is buried in Jalalpur Sharif outside of Jhelum, Pakistan.
Shapeways introduced .925 silver as a test material to produce models with (hopefully will be introduced permanently soon) and printed my model as an example:
