3D Scanning Thursday 52: Odd/weird Kitchen Utensil


(Chaitanyak) #1

This week’s 3D Scanning Thursday topic is “Odd/Funny kitchen utensil”.
The idea is, that since we are a global community,
lets take a look at some of the quirky everyday things we use in kitchens from each region!

It could be something old that your ancestors used to use..

or something new and radical

have fun!

About 3D Scanning Thursday (3DST)

Welcome to the 3DST!

Hey, nice of you to join us! The 3DST is now a weekly community challenge for 3D Scanning enthusiasts.

After much discussion with the community it was decided that a fresh challenge will launch every week(like before).
However, from now on each challenge will last 2 full weeks, thus giving everyone enough time to produce great results.
We will also be alternating themes between outdoor and indoor subjects.. because just shooting outdoor might be difficult for a lot of people.. and vice versa.

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 that you could use). Don't take the topic too literally, just let the topic be your inspiration for this week. As discussed Bart has now started appointing community members as moderators for the 3DST, starting with me @Chaitanyak this month(3 weeks of 3DST) until Bart returns and we pick someone else from the community. I hope you like the topics we pick this month!

After uploading, tag your work with the 3DST52 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 the Aug 7th before midnight.

What can I win?
The prize will now be a generous Amazon voucher, specific to the winner's region's amazon site.
So you can now get any 3d/non3d prize you like!

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!

****NOTE**: #3DST51 is still running till the 31st, so you still have a week with that theme.**
From now on we will have 2 themes running concurrently! All the best!

I haven't been inspired for 51 I'm happy to start thinking about 52 instead stuck_out_tongue

heh yup.. also the previous one had the challenge of actually having to go out doors and shoot.. lets see hopefully this one is easier for the community

I guess I'm the first one to the finish for this challenge. I should probably be embarrassed about how much time it took to get the business end looking right, but I suppose that's what weekends are for.

its amazing @port0228 ! love that handle!
could you please add the tag 3DST52 to your tags.. that way it will show up with the other models(once they start popping up smile )

Thanks! and great job!


It was a tough decision...but in the end I have to choose Samantha's ( @port0228 ) corkscrew smile

It's a great result and I'm surprised how well the actual screw part turned out.

There's still time for 3DST53 entries! Someone show @JanHorak some competition stuck_out_tongue

Haha. Thanks! For the record, to get the screw part captured (I used Agisoft Photoscan) I 'cheated' a little bit. I sprayed the end of the corkscrew with talc to a) make it less shiny and b) give the software more data to work with. The trick works on shiny / transparent stone tools, so I thought I may as well give it a go on metal.

thats a clever hack!
