Autodesk employee Arthur Harsuvanakit made this incredible cardboard Lady Liberty using 123D Make, 3DS Max, and a Faro Arm Laser Scanner! Sounds like serious business and definitely is.
Check out this PDF he put together detailing the build for more information!
The Ladies Learning Code 3D Modelling and Printing Workshop
will bring 48 lucky learners together for 4-hours of modelling and printing their own unique things. The learners will learn about 3D modelling and 3D printing using Autodesk Meshmixer and then print your 3D thing!

What is 3D printing and why is it so useful? In short,
3D printing allows you to bring a 3D object that you design come to life before your eyes. This technology, especially when used to prototype new designs, is useful in many fields, such as industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction, jewelry making, fashion design, automotive manufacturing, aerospace, dental and medical prosthetic design, education, geographic information system design, civil engineering, and countless others. It’s also just really fun to come up with an idea for something and be able to actually create it in a really short period of time! At this event we will be designing our own small unique “things” using iMacs and a program called Meshmixer and bringing them to life using an assortment of different 3D printers – we’ll have 10 or more different 3D printers on-site! Our learners will get to design their own bracelet or pendant or something else!
I just checked to see which models were in the top five - and guess what? They're still the same from last week! Crazy.
So instead, I am going to share my five favorite models in the gallery this week. Mix it up a bit!

Starting pretty soon at Disney's Hollywood Studios you have an opportunity to be cast in carbonite! They're using technology similar to 123D Catch to capture your head. I can't wait to see some user created versions of this - have a feeling we might see some in the gallery here or on thingiverse!
Click through for more info - it is pretty neat.

Now THIS is an interesting use of 123D Catch!
This video was submitted through our comments on the blog by French artist Stéphane Gantelet and I just love it. Definitely one of my favorite things done with 123D Catch so far.
You really just need to watch it - you won't be sorry! Haunting is a good way to describe it.
Here's the description of the film, google translated, from Mr. Gantelet's site:
Go home view "is an animated video that offers a tour of the subjective camera privacy of the home of Mr and Mrs Smith in Anger. Go home view starts where Google street view stops: at the door of the house. The technique used to capture 3D from photos gives a seductive and then turns nightmarish from inside this home and renewing the issues raised by the indiscretion of the digital image capture in the world and its distribution over the web."
