We have a pair of Artec scanners (the Artec EVA and Artec Spider) which each cost around $20K, and are adept at creating high resolution, full color scans. This super content pack is a collection of objects we have scanned, and will be added to over time as we scan more items. These 3D models are provided to you as full downloads for you to use as you wish.
You can load these models into Meshmixer or mixing and sculpting, and there are some awesome combinations you can come up with. One example that we show in our Meshmixer class is using a particularly jagged section of a rock to create a nasty looking scar on a figurine's face. Remember, size means nothing in the 3D realm, so you can use parts of one model as geometry in other models...and these scans are ideal at giving you high resolution color models to use. Enjoy!
Nick has earned the respect of his colleagues through hard work, dedication and vision through his 15+ years in the high-tech industry. Graduating from UC Santa Barbara with an English Major, he was hired into Sun Microsystems during the dotcom boom, and has held a number of technical roles at Sun, and more recently, at Oracle translating complex technical architectures into understandable ideas. Nick's skills go deep into both the technical understanding of the industry and the mechanics of 3D printing, and how this industry has the capability to inspire the world for the better. Nick co-founded "HoneyPoint3D" in 2013 with his wife, Liza. HoneyPoint3D offers classes for all skill and age levels, rapid prototyping, 3D Modeling, Scanning and Printing Services. Considered a 3D Printing retail expert, Nick has been interviewed on CNN, RT Television, San Francisco Business Times, KGO, most of the Bay Area newspapers and many more.
Nick is one of the co-authors of the #1 best selling 3D printing book on Amazon, entitled "Getting Started with 3D Printing" published in 2016 by MAKE Media.
