  1. It´s actually the other way around. The Royal Ascot Ladies Day is all about the hats, that's why the big sunscreen on her head. We had the chance to also get our printed jacket to be shown there. The jacket will be featured in more presentations in the near future and there will be more to come to either complete this outfit or a completely new style, we don´t know yet. And dresses have been done before, but a jacket not until now.
  2. A short article about our latest project from Larisa Katz Art Couture Designer. Featured on 3ders.org and well received by worldwide press on 2013 Royal Ascot's Ladies' Day. This project was done using FDM 3D printers and an Ultimaker was included :wink: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Early June 2013, art couture designer Larisa Katz and 3D designer Patrick Römgens from Phuntec started their first project together: Create art couture with FDM 3D printers. The project started with taking a Full Body 3D Scan of Larisa, who would wear the end results to show her new work to the public. After taking the scan and looking at the results, the decision was made to create something that hasn't been done before: a 3D-Printed fashion jacket for women. A perfect shape for the base of the jacket was cut out of the scan, restyled and adjusted in size for a perfect fit. Now both designers had their platform to work with, Larisa could envision her ideas on a virtual 3D model while Patrick was translating her ideas into the 3D modelling software. Mainly Blender was used for post-scan 3D design work but sometimes Sketchup was used to trace a photo into a basic 3D model. Once the complete jacket was designed it was cut into pieces for 3D printing on standard FDM printers with a maximum build size of 21x21x25cm. Each piece was then 3D printed in either flexible PLA for the parts around the shoulders to maintain flexibility while wearing, other pieces were 3D printed in standard PLA and all parts were stitched together to further ensure flexibility of the end result. The final result, combined with the hat designed by Larisa a big head turner was first shown on the Royal Ascot Ladies' Day this June 2013 in London.
  3. As an experienced 3D printer operator, but fairly new to Ultimaker I would like to help with beta testing this new version.
  4. http://www.phuntec.com/media/draft1_commercial.mp4 Scanned my face with my 3D scanner setup, simplified it to remove the details on it to have a basic shape of my face without eyes and mouth. Printed quite big in white. Making a video from myself talking about my projects and projected this video on top of the scan. This is a first draft just to test the effect and it scared me the first time I saw it It makes me think about the Johnny Cab scene from the old Total Recall for some reason. The idea is to put this talking face on my stand when I go to fairs or in my studio to show to people and have it talk about any project I`m working on. Another feature I´m working on with this setup is to have my face as a cgi animation that can be controlled by kinect input. So my eyes will follow you around when you move around the face.
  5. Hello, I´m using a 3D scanner setup with something based on Kinect tech but higher resolution. The sensor I´m using is a Primesense Carmine 1.09 with Skanect software and it delivers me printable objects within a few minutes. Skanect is great since it has finishing tools inside like making the scan watertight, plane cuts to remove background noise, etc etc. Also you can export full color scans with this and send it off to your full color 3d printing service. In order to get an even higher resolution output from the sensor I´ve put a +2.5 strong reading glasses on top of it, the amount of detail is crazy with this. This also works for the Kinect but still doesn't deliver the same results as with the carmine with glasses. The software itself works best with a high end video card with lots of CUDA cores on it, but it's not fully needed. Since the last version (1.3) there is also the option to use CPU instead of GPU to reconstruct the scan. You won't get a good feedback during scanning, but it will record and reconstruct it on a slower pace later on. This is how I use the sensor: http://www.phuntec.com/images/3dscanner.jpg Mounted with some printed feet on the backside of my laptop screen and with it´s glasses on it looks intelligent, right ? Like this it allows me to walk around a person or object to scan it, planecut, reconstruct, watertight, and withing minutes I have a ready to be printed file. This is a result a user on the Skanect forums posted: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-T8bXTsHdv5c/UU2mB3lDQ6I/AAAAAAAAAJY/wyCGyWZIUzc/s1600/me.hirez.primesense.with.glasses.jpg it´s a very small investment for this setup and delivers really great results. Primesense Carmine 1.09 : 200$ http://www.primesense.com/solutions/sensor/ Skanect : 99€ for a commercial license. http://skanect.manctl.com
