Photogrammetry to 3D Printing - Dog Statues

General / 29 November 2018

Following the same workflow from my previous post, and in between the sanding and primer stages of the fountain, i've decided to pursue another project.

This one is at the same location as before, Marques de Pombal Palace in Oeiras, and since I've already scanned one dog statue there, I thought it would be cool to do both statues and make some kind of bookends.

I'll show the entire process of one statue since the other one I've used the same workflow.
Here you can see the dog at the right in 3D, once again, captured with 3DF Zephyr and uploaded to sketchfab:

From this, I've checked for any kind of deffects on Meshmixer and oriented it properly and from there, went to Cura to slice it.

I've added some infill in order to get a more or less robust print and printed it at 0.2mm layer height, so, pretty standard options.

5 hours later...

After removing the supports, it was time to do one coat with primer in order to reveal the problems on this print, so...

There are some areas that need a slight sanding in order to get a proper beautiful print.
So, now I'm back to the stage i've stopped earlier, sanding, primer, sanding and eventually one or two coats of the final color.

By the way, the stand for the dog was also made and here it is, using the same process as this:


Before (top) and after (bottom) the primer

Now it's time to continue with these objects and the fountain. I hope I can show on the next update something already close to finished. :)

Any questions, suggestions, etc, feel free to comment and i'll try to answer asap.
