We all know fire hydrants belong to the streets, but how about bringing a cardboard one to your home?
This instructable is going to show how to make your own cardboard fire hydrant step by step using 123D Catch.
What you need:
123D Catch, which is software made by Autodesk that you can download as an app. (http://www.123dapp.com/catch)
Meshmixer, another Autodesk program that is used to clean up your catch. (http://www.meshmixer.com/)
123D Make, also free software by Autodesk. (http://www.123dapp.com/make)
One sheet of cardboard (18"x24")
Step 1: Catch the fire hydrant
Start by downloading the software and take the (approx) 40 photos of the object from different angles. I try to circle my object from different heights to create as correct catch as possible. Be sure to also photograph all undercuts properly, that seems to be where many catches fail.
