3 D Scanning

I have been working in the University of Florida Art and Architecture Fabrication Lab, with Dan Tankersley, MFA DIgital Media. We have been scanning natural objects then manipulating and finalizing the file. The scanner relies on reflective dots to find the object it needs to scan. SOme objects scan easier than others. The scanner is not thrilled with rough textures and undercuts. These photos are of the scanning process. The next blog post will cover the printing.
