The project was initially made for my college friends as we were all approaching graduation at that time and I wanted a special way to say good bye. Taking photos is a great way to remember moments, but shrinking lively moments to flat surfaces would inevitably bring up relatively sad and nostalgic feelings. Therefore, I want to take a more fresh and dynamic approach for this project, which is 3D scanning + 3D printing. A Kinect sensor was used to capture 3D datas from my friends and the datas had been converted to 3d mesh for 3d printing compatibility. The final step was to adjust the 3d printer and print those models out. I was happy with the outcome as I used my very own way to remember and celebrate the friendships between me and my friends and I am glad all my friends liked their little self-sculptures.
