This is a tutorial on how to use 123D Catch to get a 3D scan of your whole body. Once you have the scan or "catch" the tutorial will take you through a technique to clean it up and manipulate it ready for 123D Make. The tutorial will go through how to slice the model in Make and prep it for Laser cutting. The tutorial will briefly cover how lazer cutting and integrating the componentry and Arduino to make the head turn. The tutorial will wrap up with some example code of what worked for me during this project.
