Of all the sculptures in the world that could be machine-scanned and printed, Auguste Rodin's The Walking Man may be the most appropriate for printing as-is from a rough automated scan - unaltered, without "fixing" any of the incorrectly mapped lumps or errant wisps of data streaming off its surface.

2012-06-14: This file is rough output from Autodesk 123D Catch, with no manual guidance. It has been edited only to close open faces and delete stray lines to make it a water-tight manifold for printing. It is printable as-is, hollow and without external supports.
