3D scanner

While building the Alias model I remembered reading about a home made 3D scanner using a Web cam and a laser line. I decided to give it a try so I can Scan my clay model in and compare it to my Alias model. Should have this done by the end of this week...

So far I gave it a test run on this Iron Man Slurpee cup....... The results are pretty good for something found for free on the internet.......... All info for it can be found here

Digital Model

While building the car in clay we where assigned the task of building it in Alias as a digital model as well.... A few hours spent on this so far. Just working out secondary surfaces. I should have some updated pics up soon.....

As it sits now

After some sanding a few coats of a urethane surfacing primer.. Some wet sanding tomorrow and its ready for some color...

Hi build primer

Layed down a High Build Primer.... It went on a bit thick but nothing a little sanding can't fix..

Pre Primer

Finalized the secondary surfaces and graphics...Ready for primer

Clay progress

Its been a while since I updated progress on my Clay model. But its nearing completion. Finally nailed down a design and cleaned up the surfaces. It now sits in primer ready for some color...

There where many stages of progress, so here are a few pics to show a few of them..
