Crowd Sourcing flickr images to create 3D files.
This is a working proof of concept.
Long story short...
I didn't go to Washington DC to 3D scan the Lincoln Memorial.
Instead, I scanned flickr for all related images to "Lincoln Memorial statue" and downloaded the originals.
By uploading it to 123d catch, I was able to receive a 3D model of Abraham Lincoln's Face.
Here are my plans for a fully automated 3D generator based off of crowd sourced photography.
Hopefully google can integrate this into their search engine in a few years (or months).

So what's this mean?
We're sure AminimalStudio would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
