It's only fitting to show our first 3D print in our first blog post. One of our Trnio users took it upon himself to create a 3D print from a 3D scan using our Trnio app. While we are working on adding this functionality to the app, we thought we'd share the process.
Using the TRNIO app for the iPhone, our friend John created the scan below featuring the sculpted head of the Indian god, Ganesh. The scan was taken outside on an overcast day, and consists of 21 images.
From the app-captured images, we created a watertight STL 3D file. We then handed the STL over to our friend Phil, who imported the STL into Makerware (by Makerbot), and added a rectangular base to the model. He used the following settings for printing:
- Material was ABS plastic
- R Extruder temperature of 240C
- Bed temperature of 125C
- Material thickness of 0.2mm with a 10% fill rate
Here is a gallery of images showing the finished product. The print is approximately 2.5" long and took 1.5 hours to make.
Many thanks to John and Phil for contributing to our first 3D print!
