Head Scanning 101

Thought this might help others?

Here is my DIY (bar Stool – turned by wife ‘scanning table’) :grinning:

I am totally impressed with the outcome from this test… Not something I need to use but was great fun to play with.

The face features in my view are better defined then the supplied David statue.


  • Head Mode
  • High Res
  • 1 roughly 1 rotation
  • Post Processed in MeshMaker (and reduced in physical and file size!)

Here is the printed output of that head scan…

The filament (white PLA+) makes it hard to take a good photo showing the detail better. The result could certainly be improved if you wanted to take more time in each of the steps. But again the limitation is my printers.
