Great!
I'll be using some of my extra OpenBeams extrusions to make my 360 Light Box hopefully today.

Do you save your captures as a 3D model? If so what app?
If not, try 123D Catch http://www.123dapp.com/catch and or Momento http://memento.autodesk.com/try-memento

Lighting of the model is paramount to success. And that's where your 360 Light box comes in.
I'm hoping the models I catch with the app(s) above will make it easier for me to make accurately fitting prototype parts.

And make it easier to scan my IPhone (with case) to make a bike mount quickly that fits THE FIRST TIME!

Nice!
Without the 360 Light Box making a 3D model becomes hard. Consistent lighting makes all the difference in the world.
Now do you have a printer to print that skull out?

I do, but I do have the real life object too, remember :-)

But i'll try printing it out tomorrow

I'm curious how watertight it is and if it prints at full size without needing to modify it.
How close to 100% size.

the mesh is perfect, no issuesat all.

It didn't scale well, but I didn't check the import conversion settings in Rhino, so it's probably my fault.
Right now the software says it is 22mm high, whereas the real life thing is probably around 100. So it is not a simple metric-imperial issue.

I'll scale it up to 5cm and testprint it tomorrow.

It might not have a reference of distance/size with one lens.
So unless you set the distance of the camera each time exactly as you had before the scale might have some variation..

hmm sounds obvious, how could the software know...
I feel dumb right now :geek:

Who knew?
Heck it might have some fancy algorithm in it and all you, and I need to do is get the ratio, adjust and BAM! Home made replicator.
