Scanned sculptures from Minneapolis

Post by CTWalbridge » Tue Dec 16, 2014 7:19 pm

I'm a photographer at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and I've been learning art scanning with our collection here. I'm looking at different scanning techniques including photogrammetry (like 123D Catch) and scanner-based systems like 3D Systems' Sense and iSense scanners.
I'm printing the objects on my M2 and using Simplify 3D, which has been great because of its custom support generation.
I'm posting the scans to the artsmia account on Thingiverse (the museum's at, and we have artsmia on Twitter and Instagram), and sometimes to my account on Thingiverse too, ctwalbridge.
I'm uploading everything I can as Public Domain - most of the work in the museum's collection is in the public domain. It's a great place to be experimenting!
Objects from artsmia's collection, except Athena, which was scanned by Cosmo Wenman.
