Intro: Sculpture: Head Trophy Using 3D Scanning and CNC Milling

This piece is from a series of Woman Head Trophies.

Step 1: 3D Scanning

I 3D scanned my model using the Microsoft Kinect and the Skanect Software.

Step 2: 3D Scan to Milling

I took the 3D scan from the Skanect software. Since i was using a 3 Axis CNC Router, I had to split the model in multiple parts and mill them separately to be able to get a complete form.

Step 3: Finishing

The separately milled pieces of foam were glued and coated with plaster, then were sanded and painted.

    Thank you. It's a part of a series of trophies I am working on and it's a commentary of treatment of women by Iran's government. If you are interested, you can find more examples on my website: http://kianahonarmand.com/sculpture
