A plaster figure prototype for the architecture project


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · A plaster figure prototype for the architecture project

Hi guys! Happy to share my new work!

 

I have modeled and printed a plaster figure prototype, from which I will be able to take off the uniform and cast copies for my big architecture project!

 

In order to do this, I had scanned the original plaster figure using the 3D scanner. Then I corrected the model, removed all the chips and flaws of the original and printed it out using white PLA SnowFlake plastic on a Ultimaker 3D printer. Layer thickness 0.1 mm. The photo on the left is the original, and on the right you can see the printed model.

 

What do you think about this work? Any comments?

That is a very good scan indeed!!  Im so used to touching up scans now its usually faster to just model the darn things from scratch, but that always add 'artistic' elements. I only scan using photogrametry. Yours looks much higher res. Out of curiosity how much is that scanner? Im assuming its very expensive? I always try and justify buying a 3d scanner... yet to find a real case which photogrametry cant answer. If I couldnt model a laser scanner would be my only option but until now exact scae hasnt been required. The benefits of Photogrametry is that its essentially free assuming you have a camera, or camera phione. and crappy cameras with 9-16Mp sensors produce better scans imo.

 

But again a great scan and a great print!!

    Just curious but how much are these scanners? I really hate it when prices aren't included on the websites. It reminds me of expensive gym memberships. You have to directly enquire.
