- Hi, I'm Kacie Hultgren, and welcome to 3D scanning with a camera. In this course, we'll explore a workflow to create a digital 3D scan and turn it into a 3D printed replica. We'll use a free app from Autodesk called 123D Catch to capture a 3D scan with a smartphone or a digital camera. After scanning, we'll edit and repair the file using a free program called Meshmixer. Then, we'll learn how to 3D print a copy on a desktop 3D printer, or use a 3D printing service like Shapeways.
This process is a lot of fun. I'll be scanning this decorative lion head as our example, but you can scan a wide variety of objects. It's kind of amazing that all you need to create a 3D scan is the device you probably already have in your pocket. So let's get started.
