3D scan and print of an Oscar
I'm not watching the Oscars. I hear the show is on at the moment. But, I am watching this. 3D scanning and printing are becoming so cheap, relatively speaking, that it's likely to be within the budget of many average people in just a few years. This really scares some people because of the ease with which shapes can be copied and reproduced. Well, you can't stop progress. Bring it on.
There are 3D printer and often scanner projects nearly constantly on www.kickstarter.com
. But, do your research first and make sure it's worth it to you. You'll notice this copy isn't perfectly smooth but is built with small ridges. That's a byproduct of the resolution of the printer. Even thought you don't have to spend $1,000 any longer, the printers will still be around $500 or $600, give or take. #3dprinting #3dscanning
