We are thrilled to announce our involvement in a history-making event. Yesterday at the whitehouse Maker Faire, we unveiled two 3-D printed portraits of President Obama. This is the first time a U.S. President has been scanned in 3-D and the prints and the data from the scan will become part of the collection the National Portrait Gallery. We had the honor of scanning him with our structured light scanners and with some of the most advanced 3-D technology including University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies’ Light-stage that was used to capture his face at high resolution. Our partners at Autodesk combined the two sets of scanned data into one model and 3D Systems created the 3D print using SLS nylon. We hope to share more details about the process soon, but for now you can read the press release
