5 most epic 3D scans…so far

Recently I’ve noticed not many people know about 3D scanning, let alone some of the more incredible breakthroughs that should be regarded as milestone projects in years to come. So to help inspire and educate everyone I’ll be doing a series of blog posts starting with this one. My choice for the 5 most epic 3D scans to date are:

Parametric tPot(); generator. Input: 3D Scan, Output: Iterative physible. Made w/ Processing by @m_pf

Vase 3. 3D scanned vase modified using the processing (+hemesh) sketch I’ve been working on that imports stl files, parametrically distorts them (i.e. twist), adds thickness, and neatly crops them ready for print. Here at the iMal / Generator.x 3.0 workshop we are using makerbots, this print was done on a thing-o-matic.
