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?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
