This week in Piecing It Together we learned to make 3D models to print on the Makerbot. I worked with Danielle Butler to do 3D scans with Scanect on an aerial harness.
The process was pretty straightforward. Although we didn’t do an incredibly careful job with the scans, I really like the results. Right now we are using the free version of Scanect. I’d like to get the higher quality software so I can have a higher resolution final product.

Here’s Danielle’s scan after being processed. This is the highest quality result we got.
And some gifs of the resulting lowres 3D models. I’d like to try printing the bottom one.
