In this project, we are scanning statues to 3d print low poly miniatures!
You can 3D scan statues from museums, art galleries or historic sites to make custom keepsakes.
Use them as a base for custom models like planters or book ends. This is also great for accessibility!
With an Adafruit Qt Py and a NeoPixel Stick, you can make them glow to make a custom lamp.
To diffuse the LEDs, you can 3D print them with zero infill to make them hollow.
Using photogrammetry, we can generate detailed 3d scans and use a low polygon generator to make artistic renditions.
We had a lot of fun printing these and think it’s a great way to experience works of art when you aren’t physically able to travel. It’s also great for archiving!
Being able to touch and feel objects that are protected from the public is a great use of this technique!
