Based on a scanned Elephant Coat Hanger I did, as the original one (http://www.nadjacarlotti.com/pateres-en-porcelaine/ BTW: not existing anymore) is in a very fragile material I wanted to be sure to be able to renew it.
The resolution is not perfect, probably the scan I did was not as close as it has to be to the original object. I've made again some details via sculptris, and add the hole behind to fix it with a bolt on the wall via meshmixer (both software are AMAZING !).
Nevertheless it's great to add more in my house to handle my child coats !

in summary, the worflow is:

  • scan with 123D catch
  • import only the .obj without the mapping (avoid memory issues) in meshmixer to isolate the elephant from the rest of the scene, and add the hole behind
  • import the isolated elephant to sculptris (.obj) and add any details
  • export again to meshmixer and prepare the stl for printing
  • print in PLA with support needed beyond 40°

Very neat model, my friend's daughter is gonna love it. Will post a picture when done and mounted.

I don't suppose you happen to have the model file for this that you'd be willing to share, would you? I have NEVER been able to work with an STL. I can't make heads or tails out of blender and Sketchup is taking all night to even try and load the STL. Thanks...

Hi rebeltaz!
now you have to have some practice on meshmixer and add this new capability to your profile :)
I've added the file for those who want to sculpt.

lol... Thank you so much. God Bless Your Heart! I know what I'm going to be doing this weekend :)
