When the Gadget Show got in touch to see if we were able to help them out with a 3D scan of presenter Jon Bentley we were happy to oblige!
Using our 3DFX scanner, which consists of 96 18 mega pixel DSLR cameras, we were able to snap a few scans of Jon for the director to pick from. The scan was to be used by the ‘tech testers’ on their home 3D printers to produce miniature Jons for them to use on the episode. We sculpted in a broad range of detail sizes, to put the printers to the test. Finally, we printed out a mini Jon figure on our full colour, 3D printer.
See the full episode Monday 9th November at 7pm on channel 5.
