Introduction to 3D Scanning Technology

1:00pm to 3:00pm

Saturday session 2 of 2, for Adults

Learn how to create custom objects through the use of 3D scanning technology.  Participants will get hands-on time with a variety of 3D scanners, including the Microsoft Kinect, Sense 3D Scanner, and 123D Catch App. We'll do 3D scans of everyone’s head so you can have a 3D printed bust of yourself to take home. 


If you have a smart phone, please arrive with the 123D Catch app installed. Please sign up for an account at

This event is appropriate for ages 18 and up.
