Mark Rivera gets Scanned & Printed


Last Friday, WAND (Decatur, IL) news reporter, Mark Rivera stopped by the MakerLab to learn about 3D printing. During his visit Mark was scanned using our new Sense handheld 3D scanner (made by 3D Systems). Here is a photo of Mark with his digital image on the screens in the background.

After the scan was complete, we sliced it using MakerWare and then printed it out on one of our MakerBot 3D printers. Here is a photo of the completed print.

We then sent Mark his “Mini-Me.” Here is a photo of Mark and his 3D printed figurine taken in the WAND news office. This photo is also shown on his Facebook account, in case you would like to send Mark a comment.
