Step 6: Boolean

Select your face and open the compound object menu.

Select boolean.

Select "Subtract (A - B)" and click "Pick Operand B."

Click on the large box.

If all goes well, you should be left with a bust of your head that fits perfectly within the locket.
What the heck? I want one!
Very nice ible. I would suggest building a clasp into the locket as well... dimple on exterior, with a ball on the door which would be held by the dimple when closed. Worth trying anyway. Well done. Of course, you could print just about anything inside your locket...
Its always a good idea to carry a miniature of your own head around your neck; in case of a random beheading and you can still be identified since they most likely also took your wallet. Nice ible Randofo!
No you put your wife and self in it so you daughter can remember you when she's being mistreated by Miss Hannigan in the orphanage.
altho you would have to be sure to ask the decapitator very nicely first to leave enough of your neck behind so that you didn't loose the locket too, :)
I like this one even better!
Suggested next step would be to paint the face and head. It would be a detailed job which would certainly challenge one's painting skills. You could add that on to this instructable later.
Cool, you got this material to!!! Full equiped yellow robot of my heart.
Yay! I get to see Randy Sarafan whenever I open my locket! <br>-BLUEBLOBS2
Like! :-) <br>
Do you want one?
Sure! Make yourself one as well....lol!
Super excellent ible&nbsp;<strong> :&not;|)</strong><br> <br> How long and how much does it take if one wants to do his grand children ??<br> <br> A
Very creative concept. I like that you included the results of all your trial and error. There's a lot that can be learned from the mistakes as well as the successes. So, great job! <br> <br>Is the next step to cover it in gold leaf? ;-)
Actually... was looking at this...<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.ponoko.com/make-and-sell/show-material/240-3d-printed-gold-plate#main-image">http://www.ponoko.com/make-and-sell/show-material/240-3d-printed-gold-plate#main-image</a>
Okay. I stand (er... sit) corrected. ;-) <br> <br>That is much cooler than gold leaf - and would make a great Instructable! (hint, hint)
