3-D Portraiture testing- Upper School

Upper School students in Sculptural Forms designed and built a rotating stand (lazy-susan) to assist in 3-D image capturing. They hacked into an XBox Kinect to use the powerful camera and Skanect software for the scan itself. Once the image was scanned they were able to alter the recorded image in Tinkercad. Once the portrait was designed the finished piece was sent to the Printrbot 3-D printer. This week, Students had the opportunity to scan our very own Head of School, Matt Miccichi to create his  3-D portrait. The students are continuing to refine the accuracy of the scan and quality of the print but were very pleased of this test. Who should we scan next?
