I want to 3D print some “Everlasting Gobstopper” replicas from the 1971 Gene Wilder film, but I need a Blender Guru to model it for me. The model will be 3D printed via Shapeways and then hand painted. Here is a picture of a carved sandstone replica that I found on eBay, and closely represents what I am looking for:
Here is a pic of an official gobstopper from the actual film:
And lastly, here is a cropped screen grab of Wonka holding the gobstopper in his hand (for sizing reference):
I can provide more reference photos if needed, but I think the images I posted should give you enough information to correctly model the object. In my opinion, it appears that the top is a truncated 4-sided pyramid, the four side pieces are truncated 3-sided pyramids with their edges slightly planed off, and the bottom four pieces are the same as the top. Using CSG additive techniques for all nine objects should probably do the trick. I leave it up to the modeller to calculate the dimensions of the various frustums.
I would prefer to render payment using PayPal, but am open to other options if necessary. Thanks for reading!
