From 3D modeling with PhotoScan to 3D printing

Visual Effects artist Greg Petchkovsky recently released some of his videos, where he plays with the frames reworked with PhotoScan, combining 3D modeling and printing.

Thanks to the combination of 3D scanning, digital modeling and later 3D printing, it is possible to create extraordinary and surprising effects.
In this tutorial, Greg Petchkovsky describes the process of creating a complete 3D object, printed in color that fits perfectly into a real sandstone wall, producing the illusion that the wall is constructed from pieces of lego. But the techniques described have a more general utility, the almost unlimited potential, easy and less expensive than one might think!After photographing the broken corner of a wall, Petchkovsky recreated the block of stone in 3D through the PhotoScan package, by cutting it and inserting a set of LEGO tiles in ZBrush and 3ds Max, after the modeling was brought to 3D printing with Shapeways .The result: the LEGO model is perfectly integrated with the reconstruction of the block angle recreated in Photoscan.If you are inspired to do something similar,https://vimeo.com/43442146

Petchkovsky has published a detailed guide to the process: http://www.blendernation.com/2012/11/09/non-blender-repairing-reality-with-3d-printing/
