5. 3D scanning and printing (Feb 26, 2014)
3D scan an object
I picked up a branch of bamboo without leaves in bamboo grove
around my workplace. Then I bent and dissected it into segments
at the degradable nodes. The length of these segments is in the
range of 15-75 mm.
One of the segments was placed upright on the turntable by using
On the turntable.
I 3D scanned with Rexcan 3 system, which consists of two cameras
and white light Phase-Shifting Trianglation (PSI) technique used
for high resolution and low deviations and errors. I exported
the 3D scanned model from ezScan and Rapidform XOM (re-polygon
and finishing) in STL file format.

Settings (Lens: Xenoplan 2.8/50, Scan area (diagonal): 103
mm, and Step rotation angle: 20 degrees (Total: 360 degrees))

3D print the object I scanned
I used CatalystEX, an application designed to interface with
Dimension 3D printers. I opened the STL file and prepare the
data for 3D print with this application.

Then I 3D printed the object I scanned, with Dimension BST768.
