iMakr, and its 3D printable object download platform - MyMiniFactory - have embarked on an ambitious new endeavour to 3D scan and print the world's most prolific sculptures and landmarks. Our idea is to bring these iconic items into the hands of people across the globe, allowing them to either purchase a pre-printed figure, or download the free model and print it for themselves.
We're looking for people to help us with this initiative by going out and scanning the sculptures near them. This, in essence, involves taking a number of photographs from various angles, and then sending them to us so we can model them in 3D. Once printed we will send the print to whomever scanned the sculpture as a thank you. This meetup will be a chance for us to fully explain this process to anyone who is interested, and then take you out for a demonstration scan.
We look forward to seeing you there!
