The winner of 3DST42 "Gifts"

Oh my, what happened! There were only two entries for 3DST this week - including mine! I guess I don't need to spend much time why @crlnvl's entry was selected wink On a personal note though, I'd love to get my hands on that Zelda book..

About 3D Scanning Thursday (3DST)

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 3DST43 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.

What can I win?

3D Hubs is sponsoring the 3DST with a $25 3D printing coupon. Thanks guys!

Cool, anything else?

We only have a few additional rules:

  • You can submit as many entries as you like.
  • Entries scanned before theme announcement are not ok.

That's about it! If you have any questions, let me know. Otherwise, have a great weekend and enjoy creating your 3D scans!

Wow, awesome job on capturing reflective material! Does 3digify do actual PBR scanning??

Hi Bart,
not yet but we're currently working on it wink However, scanning the shape of reflective surfaces is already working quite well..


I did my own fake PBR scan. Pretty happy with it, I need to tweak PhotoScan settings and learn to do some better smoothing afterwards.

Nice scan @abbyec, but I think peeps are disgusting laughing

@mik1190 - nice details on the topping

@bartv - well done finding something not wrapped in foil! @crlnvl not so lucky wink

Hey @james, which extra steps did you do to achieve the 'fake PBR' look?


@bartv This was a pretty simple one, just switched to PBR and adjusted metalness/specular/glossiness:

There are some much more impressive workflows out there, like EISKO ( https://skfb.ly/DI7I ) and http://blog.meltinglogic.com/2015/04/creating-next-gen-assets-from-scanned-data/
