Picture of Take Photos and Make 3D Model.

I take normal photos with normal camera. And make 3D model with "Autodesk 123D Catch" .

Step 3: Slice 3D Model With Slic3r

Program Slic3r offers slice to SVG. Open the 3D model in the program, clips, slice to SVG.

Subsequently the SVG file to edit. I used Inkscape. It is necessary to delete the curve in the back of the picture. Those that cross and trim. In some ways helped me XML editor, but all the cuts I made by hand (I did not come for a tool that would automatically).

Step 4: Polargraphcontroller and Painting

I prepared an ordinary pen, which I filled with black ink. I have ready polargraph, I placed the canvas. I've uploaded the SVG file to Polargraphcontroller, set the parameters. Tried paint without the pen. And I started to paint.

Step 5: Videos

Thank you for watching, I wish you a creative day.

Can you reply with a little more detail of how you edited the 3D rendering in inkscape to create a SVG file. Every time I try to load the SVG file in the controller nothing happends. Thanks!

Very cool project. Even if you don't have a polargraph. Just using a normal printer.
Will have to try it with my plotter... :D

I'd love to try this out but the instructions are very vague, to say the least. Could you elaborate steps 2 and 3, please? Or at least point to other instructions that would explain it? Do I need the premium version of Autodesk 123D Catch or does the free one the job, too?

I'll do it. Yes I used just free version. Thanks

I love the way this looks. Reminds me of the Radiohead House of Cards music video.
