3D Scanning Thursday 40: Miniatures

The winner of 3DST39 "Travel"

I invited Crlnvl, winner of 3DST39, to pick this week's winner and tell us a bit about his choice. He says:

The choice for this week was difficult and I hesitated between the French Lantern Clock and the Hiking Boot. In the end I think the Hiking Boot from Tobias is the best one : there are a lot of details, particulary for the shoelaces. The texture is great (even if we can see "shadow effect" from the shoelaces on the shoe) and the shoe can be viewed at any angle. Also the normal map seems very neat. It is a wonderful scan!

Welcome to the 3DST!

Hey, nice of you to join us! The 3DST is a weekly community challenge for 3D Scanning enthusiasts. Participating is about fun and honor, although we do offer a modest prize.

How do I participate?

We pick a new topic every week and you enter by creating a 3D scan using any tool you like ([here's a list of 3D scanning apps][scanning_apps] that you could use). Don't take the topic too literally, just let the topic be your inspiration for this week.

After uploading, tag your work with the 3DST39 tag so everyone can view the contest gallery. For extra fun, post your entry below (just write down the URL in a reply).

The submission deadline is Thursday before midnight.

Congratulations, @TobiasNoell! Those Hiking Boots are just awesome. I'm also happy that the French Lantern Clock, technically, got the second place. smiley

Here's my try this week: a 15th century St. Peter statue made of Nottiingham alabaster.

It's a local museum piece and it was part of a 12 piece altar with all 12 apostles. It was vandalized and this was the only piece that survived. Before you ask, that's also why this is a headless St. Peter. smile

This small statue (6,8mm high) has been around my house since I can remember. When I saw the full body 3dprinted miniatures it came clear to my mind that classic "I've seen this before!". It is made in non magnetic metal (I cannot tell if plumb or a mixture because it is hard), hand painted and with a small wood plate. It always amazed me how close the look of my grandfather was captured. It is just like him!

I'm trying to get better with Trnio. Clearly not there yet. I did this too fast because the shopkeeper was starting to give me funny looks.

Alright, I went a little nuts this time, I have 6 entries. But it was good practice. (DoF is sooooo important for photogrammetry.) Added here are the descriptions from each, because, really, I went nuts.

Terracotta Warrior 1: Ever wanted your own personal afterlife army for your underground city/royal tomb? Well, here's your start!

Terracotta Warrior 4: Under your earthen necropolis, you'll live forever surrounded by lackeys who will selflessly obey your every command! They're clay, they have no choice!

Terracotta Warior 4 #3dst40 by John Fino (tauricity) on Sketchfab

Terracotta Warrior 5: Think of all the menial tasks other non-emperor/deities have to suffer through in the afterlife. But not you! Your own personal staff bows properly and politely whenever your float by.
