Cut and paste 3d scan geographies?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cut and paste 3d scan geographies?

I'm really new to this so please go easy on me!


Does anyone know if I can use scans to create a geography (3D texture) that I can then apply to other objects? i.e. scan the skin of an avocado and then paste it over the outside of a teacup. 


I've managed something similar with bump maps from pictures but would love to be able to use my scans and combine them.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply and I will definitely explore this option however I would ideally like to use 3D textures/geographies from parts of scans in order to apply specific textures from one scan onto parts of another. I’m very new to this and looking through some of the programmes I feel I’m over looking something obvious. Maybe the shrink wrap function in blender can be used in some way?
