Mixing 3D Printed Digital Sculptures With Real Objects

There are lots of people in this world, that are trying to make it nicer, better place for all of us.

Sometimes it is just a small act of kindness (no act of kindness is small), or it is something, that when you see it, your day becomes instantly better.

Artist Greg Petchkovsky is one of them. Even though, his work was part of a challenge “Make it real” on Instructables, imagine the endless possibilities, how you, or anyone else could repair broken, old pieces and give them new life.

In his video he is showing, how easy it can be to transform broken stone on old buildings or stairs making it “real” again. You might want to compare it in some way to how dentists work when they are filling teeth. They also need form, that they will work with. In this case, it’s less messy, and for sure, there is no pain involved. If you want to make 3D printed sculptures and mix them with real objects, all what you have to do it take as many pictures as you can of the original object which you will transform. With this you will make sure that you will get the most accurate result.

Most of the work is done is specialize programs, like Agisoft Photoscan. This program an advanced image-based 3D modeling solution aimed at creating professional quality 3D content from photos. Photos can be taken from any position, providing that the object to be reconstructed is visible on at least two photos. Both – alignment and 3D models are fully automated.

After that, he continued his amazing work at a program called 3ds Max. This program is a 3D computer graphic program for making 3D animations, models, games and images. Here is where all the magic is happening. You can change every single small detail you want, for example: metal surface, leather walls, parts can have different colors etc. There are no limits whatsoever.

There is no limitation how you can make a world better place with 3D printed digital sculptures. Every single detail count and someone will definitely notice. See video below, how Greg Petchovsky did it and take it as your inspiration.
