We scanned Fabien using a combination of Artec scanning for the body and photogrammetry for the face. Obviously this was a very hard pose to hold and capturing it was a difficult task but with a bit of patience and lots of Artec Studio know how we managed to produce a very clean scan.
The head was captured with the Artec but in order to get a perfect expression we used our 18 camera AGI rig to capture the expression, this was then combined with the Artec scan in Zbrush to create the final model.
The final piece will be printed and re sculpted into a 5m tall! version of the original sculpture below
We received 3 6cm prints of our kick boxer scan from PD Models today. considering the size of the model the quality is excellent. They were good enough to provide us with 3 version of the same model one primed and polished, one with just the primer coat and the last one in the raw material.
We are working hard to reduce our full body scan time, initially we started with full body tests taking as long as 30 seconds using only 9 cameras, however over the last few weeks we have managed to bring that down to 5 seconds using a new 16 camera set-up with 2 more cameras for the face 18 in total.
Obviously the definitive solution is to buy 100 cameras, reducing the scan time to that of the shutter. However we are confident that a 20 – 30 camera rig is capable of capturing very high detail full body / head scans.
We are trying to keep our rig as minimal as possible at the moment we can pack it into a few cases which is great for portability.
We have just released the first of many full body 3d Scans. these are simply intended as clothing / wrinkle reference for digital sculpters, there are only 9 at the moment but over the coming weeks / months we are hoping to add a lot more including full body anatomy scans.
