Finally Kinect May Be Useful


By Akuf - Posted on 05 February 2015

As lot of you know, I make costumes. The hardest part of the process is creating templates for the costumes for the people I make them for. Usually I make a duct tape dummy of the person and build on top of that. This however may make life a lot easier.

I am planning to test it out this weekend

I understand the scanning part, but how do you turn that into a physical costume? I can't imagine body-sized 3D printers are affordable yet.

Although when they are, say goodbye to that hobby...

Look up Pepakura
Basically an advanced Form of origami

You can use a 3D model from a game then impose it on the model of your body.

I rarely use it as I do everything free hand for the most part.

But if this works.....
