Kinect Print

Our young padawan Alban just brought a 3d printer at the office.
So we scanned my head with a Kinect, tweaked the resulting model to reduce the polycount, and printed it (on a reduced scale).
Next step is to test some mapping on it.

Scanning time: 10seconds
Printing time: 7hours

        Max rulez my friend ! However, the re-meshing was done in Rhino, b/c it has a nice drape function (and I haven’t seen an equivalent in Max)
