3DP Makes // April

This month I’ve had a focus on planters and 3D scanning in the lead up to my involvement with Supanova and the Planting Festival.

At Supanova, I did my first trials of 3D scanning at the venue with people in costume.  The 3D model below is one of the most challenging things I’ve 3D printed, requiring a network of supports generated from MeshMixer.  I also 3D scanned the Jedi Kit Fisto, which is an interesting model to capture.  The head piece was made out of pool noodles!  My scanning rig is a Primesense Carmine 1.09 and the Skanect software suite.


Here are some of the self-watering planters I made from this model in Woodfill and PLA.

Bulbasaur self-watering planters – These sold fast at Supanova!

Lastly, this baby groot is made out of Woodfill and was made as a cake topper!
