    these are 3D prints from real people scans, can it get more real?

    ok, That's cool.
  7. Ferris A Fixture

    Very, VERY cool!

    This will be the next generation of figures, I'm convinced. Perfect copies of reenactors, in whatever scale you want.
    You can even have your own head scanned and have it copied on your figures...

    You can't beat the drapery on these ones....wow!

    Cheers

    Normally only comment about Napoleonics but had to in this case: these are just superb and I agree with Adrian. The only drawback might be with action figures as, to be imaged in 3D, I suppose the pose must be maintained perfectly still while the 360° scan is made.

    Could finally be some paid work for re-enactors. Can we make sure they're reasonably handsome chaps and not overweight please, paint is expensive and I don't want to use any more than what I have to. So maybe we can have George Clooney dressed as a GI in Iraq or Brad Pitt as a captain of an American tank crew???

    I agree with Ferris. Why digitally sculpt when you can scan the real thing?

    Superb, but I suspect that sculptors won't be out of a job just yet. Modern and well represented re-enactment periods may be well covered, other periods less so.

    Amen, Mike! And there will still be those who sculpt using traditional methods and media, because they like to, and there will be those who use 3D sculpting, too, because they like it.

    I do see my prediction about 3D printing from a couple of years back, coming true, and that is that the technology will improve and it will become cheap enough that the average modeler can afford the equipment, and we'll get files with the plans to print a figure from a manufacturer and print the piece out.

    Prost!

    I have a similar feeling Forghi, I guess fantasy and sci-fy subjects dont get afected much with this, maybe it is time to sculpt aliens ha :)

    interesting
    but
    that's the same thing some people said when photography came widespread (that it might replace portrait painting)

    and here we are in 2015, people are still paying hundreds of millions of dollars for some unique paintings

    traditional sculpting and painting will always remain an art form

    I have the impression my 'next generation' remark is misinterpreted.
    With next generation I only mean there is a new way of making figures, with a new level of realism.
    New generations do not make previous ones disappear.

    Of course there will be room for traditional sculpture.
    Another reason these scanned poses will not replace traditional sculpts is that there's still considerable cost involved in the scanning and digital post-processing. It's a lot work. The technology is not yet very much reducing the cost of bringing a figure to market, or to produce it. Only when that happens sculpting will be more and more pushed into a niche (it will never totally disappear, I fully agree

    Cheers,

    The most interesting thing for me is that this 3D printing come up every area of life. I've seen house-builder printing which uses concret, and food printing (which uses not concret but pasta) and heard about living tissue printing. So it's seems that be true what somebody said: 3d printing will make revolution as big as internet did before.

    Hi Antonio,
    Really incredible,
    which 3d printer have you used?
    I not see the different layers
