Hello to everybody,
it's time to show you the firsts steps of a project I'm working for.
Months ago Mr.Al Graham contact me and show his purpose to build a real-life sized suit of the Marvel's character Iron Man, model Mark II.
The general idea is to scan a well-detailed puppet, re-build the entire mesh topology, refine and adjust the details looking at the style of movie's armour. Finally send all the 3D files to .Al Graham for the CNC work.
Mr.Graham send me the action figure and I've started the first scan months ago. I'm proceed very slow (I do this only in my few spare time): only now I've something to show.
This is a Work In Progress and I can't set now a deadline date for the entire project, so I'll update this thread fitfully.Well, it's time to begin.
Here below you can find an image of the real object: an action figure from Hot Toys company (http://www.hottoys.com.hk
It's 30 cm (12 inch) tall.
In the second image you can see that the puppet have many moveable pieces and hidden parts.
Finally some screenshots of the process of scanning. As visible, I've used the latest great feature of David to rotate the camera. By this way is possible to scan better and more closely long and thin object. Thanks Sven & Simon!
