3D collage of Rodin's work


I had quite a few photos of Burghers of Calais from Musee Rodin in Paris. I processed photos with my3dscanner and 123DCatch but the results were equally bad.

To get something useful out of it I combined very fragmented 3D models into 3D collage with SmashTheMesh and made a mold for a gypsum model so I can make it when I get 3D printer.

Can someone explain me who and why downloaded this model 250 times in one day???

thers a sculpture of them in basel too..
impressive resemblance! i recognised them instantly.
scanning such a complex sculpture sadly still needs Professional laserscanning equippment and software worth 10000$ plus a cloudcomputing service to bear with the generated data... but luckily we have some scanning equip at our institute.. maybe i go for a try.

It may be not a bad idea but reflective surface and occlusions may be challenging for laser scanner as well. And even if you have decent scan there will be problems
printing them. The details will be lost in a small size plastic replica of a large sculpture.

I basically try to demonstrate that fragments of a great artwork may have value by themselves.

Where can I get SmashTheMesh?

Well, at the moment it is a semi-automated workflow rather than a solid technology. I am looking for a programmer to forge it into a piece of software if people find the concept interesting.

I would say it was really nicely salvaged!

Thank you!
