-Autodesk 123D Catch to scan the image into CAD
-Autodesk MeshMixer to massage & patch up the CAD surfaces
-MakerBot Replicator to 3D print the spoon
-KeyShot to render the spoon
Step 1: Materials You Need
-an iPad with Autodesk 123D Catch app (free download here)
*you may use a digital camera & Autodesk 123D Catch for online or PC instead
-brass knuckles (I used these plastic UrbanHooker fishing brass knuckles)
-a plastic spoon
-some fishing line
-a small amount of clay
-a pair of scissors
-you'll also need a computer with Autodesk MeshMixer software (free download here)
-access to MakerBot Replicator
Step 2: Cut & Attach the Spoon to the Brass Knuckles
Step 3: Hang the Brass Knuckle Spoon
*note-I attempted to shoot the 123D Catch with newspaper as the background for a better catch. This method proved to not work well. My second catch attempt without the newpaper & the wood grain of the table as the background worked much better. Please read tips for a better catch here.
Step 4: Photos for 123D Catch
Step 5: Process the Catch
Step 6: Import Catch Into MeshMixer
Step 7: 3D Print With MakerBot
After all of the holes have been patched in MeshMixer so that it is a solid, you can now send it to the 3D printer. Open the file in MakerWare & position it on the platform. Send to the MakerBot Replicator.
Step 8: 3D Print Complete
Step 9: Render in KeyShot
Open the OBJ in KeyShot & render as chrome.
Enjoy food fighting.
