This is a 3D scan of a handmade ceramic cactus I bought in Mexico at a street market about 20 years ago.


I used Autodesk's 123D Catch app on my iPad mini to take about 30 photos of it. It was processed by Autodesk and I then cleaned it up using Netfabb Studio Basic and oriented it with MakerWare.

Added a loop at the top to make it into a keychain/necklace/etc.

Will this print without support material?

That depends on your printer but it was printed without support.

Hey, that cactus appears in the book I bought! :)
