The Rest of SIGGRAPH 2013



Studio3D Scanner
Joey Hudy – Arizona State University

The Studio3D scanner can make a 3D scan of a person or large object in one minute by rotating the subject on a platform while a Microsoft Kinnect sensor moves along a half circle track. People who were willing to wait and pose for the system were rewarded with a 3D model of themselves.


Joey says he made the scanner for a final project in Design Technology at Arizona State Univerity's "Herberger Academy" (a program for advanced high school students in STEM). He is 16 years old.


True Color 3D Printing
Gary Fudge - Mcor Technologie


3D printers were very well represented in the exhibit hall. There were more than a few vendors and the systems have become quite sophisticated over the last couple years. But one that really stood out to me was from Mcor Technologies – it produces full color 3D objects. I have seen other 3D printers that have several colors to choose from and can combine them in a single model, but this was the best actual full color printer I have seen.


The medium it uses is reams of paper; the same paper you use in your printer or plain paper copier. What it does is print the image of each cross section slice a given page will have in the final model with an ink that soaks through the paper. Then it stacks the paper back up and uses Selective Deposition Lamination technology to glue the right parts together and remove the rest. What it produces are full color 3D models that are vibrant and realistic. Gary had a model of part of his face, and when he held it up, the resemblance was striking.


Conclusion

Overall Siggraph 2013 was a lot of fun and I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of what I saw on display in both the main exhibit hall and the emerging technologies pavilion. Its obviously an exciting time for immersive technologies and people are doing some really neat stuff. It will probably be a few years until the conference returns to southern California where it is convenient for me to attend, and I cant wait to see what will be showcased by then!
