Featured Thing!

Description

The Open Crowd Project is a collaborative project using 3D scanning and printing technology to create a “crowd” of people printed with 3D printers.

The goal of this project is to collaborate with people who may be in different geographic areas, but who are willing to come together and collaborate through an online space. We encourage everyone that is interested in this project to participate! All you have to do is follow the instructions provided on the “participate” page of The Open Crowd Project website and we’ll create a 3D model of you, 3D print it, and include you in the crowd!

By participating in The Open Crowd Project, you will have the opportunity to see a representation of yourself in a group of people that have never before been assembled in physical space. Through this project, we hope to offer the opportunity to see yourself standing alongside others, therefore reinforcing a sense of togetherness between people who may otherwise be strangers.

I'd love to do it.

What a cool idea! Will the resulting models be shared back to the collaborators, or publicly?

Thanks so much! Super excited about it. My thought is that it would be awesome to allow others to print their own crowds as well, but still working on the logistics of that. I think we'll start by adding some of them here, then build from there.

Certainly, the 3D scans can be sent back to the people that send in images, though. Especially for those that already have the capability to view them on a screen. It'd be great to send back an actual print, but financial considerations might get in the way of that right now.
