3D sculpture of my 5 months old granddaughter.



I found a nice gadget : BMP2IGES, a German utility that alows you to process an image and have the grey values become height values in the resulting 3d object.

Th e program can than export .STL, which really need NetFabb cleaning, but prints well after that.

are you using netfabb basic?

Hi JM,

no, i am using the cloud service to fix the .STK


I think it looks cool. Would mind telling me what settings you used for the BMP2IGES program and what you did in NETFABB? Also what settings you used for printing? It would save me a lot of trial and error. Thanks in advance.

Hi Dominick,
in bmp2iges, I made the frame smaller and the depth of the print level greater.
Also I moved the darker to the back, contrary to the default.
After that export to STL. However, the STL ends-up below the bed, o i raised it in OpenScad. But it would not reder or export again, So i upload it to netfabb wh fixed a lot of unmanifolds. After that I coud process in Openscad and Slic3r and print as you see it .

Succes and please show picturs of the result :-)

It reminds me of Han Solo frozen in carbonite!

Not sure ifmy grand3daughter likes that thought, but i see your point :-)
