3D printing and scanning: What have we been printing?

GoPro 360 rig

 

Who?
Bradfield Senior College STEM group.

What?
360 rig for multiple GoPro cameras.

Why?
Multimedia students can capture 360 videos of College events. The latest project is for Vivid’s The new creatives : hidden in plain view. This involves recording 360 video footage of a forest and overlaying the voice of an Aboriginal person telling a story in their native language.

How?
The original file was sourced from Thingiverse.

Northern Beaches ceramics students.

What?
Ceramics stamp.

Why?
These custom made stamps allows the students to identify their ceramic work with stylised initials or a personal logo.

How?
A scanned design is imported into Sketch-Up, converted to three dimensions and exported as a .STL file for 3D printing.

Vampire

 

Who?
St Leonards Campus Games design student.

What?
Bust of a vampiric creature of the night.

Why?
Personal interest.

How?
From a base model, the creature was sculptured using Autocad software.

The original file was sourced from Thingiverse and spray painted in gold.

Kaijin

 

Who?
St Leonards Campus - Game Design Diploma students

What?
Giant Japanese mythical fighting creatures called Kaijin (think Godzilla) created as avatars for a computer game.
