Some new mentions this week:
- Thanks to our software Reconstructme for featuring the project on their blog- we wouldn’t be there without them! http://reconstructme.net/2013/07/26/the-coney-island-scan-a-rama/
- Time Out also did a nice little piece on the project this week: http://www.timeout.com/newyork/things-to-do/get-a-3-d-portrait-by-supporting-the-scan-a-rama-kickstarter-campaign
With less than two weeks left we really need all the link love we can get, so anyone who has media connections please help get the word out! Secondly, anyone with any connections to event planners or fundraisers who might be interesting in offering 3D portraits at their event or gala, please send them our way- we need one or two high end supporters!
Now with no further ado, I wanted to address the open hardware aspect of the project. Its not the highest production value video I’ve ever made, but here’s a video that goes into the Scan-O-Tron 3000, the hardware 3D Scanning rig that I’ve been developing (which will be released on Thingiverse at the end of the campaign). This video is a little more technical- for the geeks out there- and is about the operation of the equipment, as opposed to my earlier post which was more about the experience of being scanned. For backers $20 and up I will also be releasing a video of my file cleanup routine in Netfabb Basic to you as a sneak preview before it’s available to the rest of the world. Enjoy!
Makers, you can already check out my Lazy susan design for full body scanning here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:28454 , and download loads of sample 3D full body scans off my Scan-A-Rama collection here: http://www.thingiverse.com/fredini/collections/coney-island-scan-a-rama
Have a great weekend and please help make this happen!
