I am part of a growing community of makers here in Portland, Oregon. We call ourselves Layer Geeks and even have a club on meetup.com called the “Portland 3D printing lab” We Love to talk about 3D printing and challenge each other to make. We also do fun projects like 3D print a life size cow #crowdcow.
This project is by far one of my favorites to date, the Portland Art Museum asked me to 3D scan the Cantor foundation's statues made from the work of Auguste Rodin. With patience and a steady hand I guide my Ipad equipped with the Structure scanner from Occipital. In real time on an Ipad im able to see the object get recorded into a 3D printable object. I used Autodesk's Meshmixer application to size and clean up the scan. The Portland art Museum made this possible and I am truly lucky to be able to share these scans with my fellow makers. Go visit "Auguste Rodin the human experience" if you can (the exhibit is ongoing through April 2017).
I invite you to have fun with the scans, make them for yourself or a friend so you too can be a part of the maker movement.
