Following on from our successful 3D scan and 3D print of the runner we took the Sense 3D scanner outdoors to see what could be achieved with the portable scanner.
We stumbled upon a James Joyce statue in St.Stephen’s Green that we felt would be ideal for a 3D scan, it was head height so we would be able to move around the statue. On our first attempt to scan, it was a sunny day in March and with this the sun caused a slight glare on the statue therefore the 3D scanner was unable to read the geometry of the statue correctly. We didn’t have to wait long for a cloudy dull day, subsequently headed out to capture a successful scan. The lack of glare on the statue made it much easier to achieve the desired 3D scan.
We printed the scan on our desktop 3D printer the CubeX and on our larger full colour Projet660pro. The size of the models are 114mm x 98mm x 53mm they were scaled at 25%.
