3D Printed Photographs

Make Your Memories Come to Life!

What Is It?

A 3D model of a 2D image!

How Did I Do it?

  1. Turn 2D image into a 3D image using BMPTOIGES
  2. Use NetFabb and scale the Z down by 50%
  3. Using MeshLab reduce the faces the picture has
  4. Print!

The Challenges

  • The pictures I originally wanted to use, I couldn't because there wasn't enough contrast in them
  • Some pictures did not print correctly
  • The programs gave me some trouble and I didn't understand them

I Learned How To...

  • Tell what pictures have Contrast
  • Use NetFabb
  • Create a Lightbox
  • Slice a 3D model
  • Decrease faces in images
