3D Scanning at ideaLAB

This week we were visited by James Allan from Crowtrees Studio (www.crowtreesstudio.com). He brought his 3D scanning kit and gave us some tips on how to go from a 3D scan to an actual 3D print of ourselves. The process involves some software that is new to us, including Skanect and Blender. If you're interested in helping us figure some of this stuff out come by ideaLAB and let us know! After all... who wouldn't want to be immortalized in plastic...

Laser Learning
Planning their project

ideaLAB was full of excitement and buzz, the laser cutter was up for some action! Newbies from across the province really only those in Innisfil came in to learn the basics of laser cutting. No matter what your age, you never to old or young to keep learning and try your hand at a new project. Come and visit anytime to learn more out the laser cutter and create your own unique works of art.
