I spent my 4th of July (2012) vacation at my family's cabin in Northern Michigan and decided I needed to capture/scan pieces from my childhood. This scan is of a tribal African mask that hangs on the wall of a bedroom in the cabin. When I was a kid, I was always afraid to enter the room because I thought this mask was going to come alive and eat my soulâ€¦ One time my older brother Francesco chased me around the cabin with the mask, providing me with a fresh batch of nightmares. Come to find out years later that the mask was harmless, I began to warm up to the mask. Now I really love this mask and thought it would be nice to replicate it and hang it on my wall at home.
I used 123D Catch for model construction and Netfabb for model cleanup. Cleanup was very easy because the scan came out quite perfect. I included all the photos, .3dp file from 123D Catch, and the scaled .stl file. The mask is rotated at a 45 degree angle to maximize print volume on your build platform.
How I made mine:
.2 layer height
I bumped my build platform temp to 110C (helps with adhesion on long skinny objects)
