To customize the color texture images, first make a copy of this directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)/FaceGen/3D Print Pro/data/csam/3DPrint/
and paste it into:
(My Documents on Windows 7). Restart FaceGen 3D Print and the new model set will appear as a tab.
Within the 3D Print model set directory, parts are grouped into sub-directories. Within each sub-directory, parts are identified by a .TXT file containing the name of the part. A corresponding .BMP file represents skin color, if applicable. Coresponding files with the name FILE_COLOR represent the various color texture options, which appear as selections labelled COLOR in Modeller. You can add to, remove from, or edit these files. Be aware that Modeller makes use of the alpha channel in these images for transparency.
If you want to save money on printing material, here are some hollowing options:
If you are only printing the head with no hair or stand just select the hollow head mesh before exporting.
If you are including a hairstyle or stand, select the solid head mesh, and all other parts, then export to OBJ format. Import into Autodesk Meshmixer (free). Rotate to the upright orientation (Edit tools Transform). Merge all meshes into a single solid (Edit tools Make Solid). Hollow out the solid (Edit tools Hollow). You can specify the wall thickness, accuracy, hole size etc.
If you are printing with color maps, try out Sculpteo's automatic hollowing function, or the Intersecting and Hollowing functions on the MakePrintable service.
