Getting the family involved with 3D printing and scanning is a lot of fun. For this project Sami, who is 4 years old, 3D designed a snowman ornament using 3D scanning on the ZEUS All-In-One 3D Printer. We finished it by decorating it up for a fun Christmas project. Its never too early to get kids involved with STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and math) learning. We started with a quick trip to the store to pick up a fresh batch Play-Doh. Sami used her ample Play-Doh skills to make a simple snowman out of a cool blue colored Play-Doh.
Preparing to 3D Scan
We then placed the finished Play-Doh snowman into the ZEUS 3D printer and scanner. Sami selected the scan option on the ZEUS and set the printer for a high quality scan. High quality wasn’t really necessary for such a simple object but we had plenty of time so high quality is was!
