3D Laser Scanning and Printing Merge For Famous Puppet

Technology is used to create stunningly accurate features

Finding new ways to create entertainment is one of the best jobs someone could have, especially when mixed with the latest technology. A film called Ludo was released a few days ago, and it featured an amazingly made puppet. The puppet looked just like the ventriloquist, the eyes, hair, mouth, nose, and other small features. The father and some team released a statement saying the puppet was made using 3D laser scanning and printing. It brought the whole show together and made some fantastic entertainment for viewers to watch.

Though it was a puppet, the features look life size and extraordinarily real. It is unlike other ways of creating replicas, and 3D laser scanning is much more exact. The process was much easier than different ways of creating an exact replica, but it was still time-consuming. This technology has helped us in many unexpected ways. Becoming a ventriloquist is not the easiest thing to do but having a well-made puppet that can move accordingly is one of the best starts.

3D laser scanning and printing have emerged in many ways throughout the film industry and most art-related fields. It has helped create some stunning features that we would not have seen otherwise. This technology is one of the most advanced and unique tools that someone can use.

How the puppet process works

First, Aditya, the ventriloquist’s face, had to be scanned for the entire process. They could capture his face and download it to the partnering editing system where everything could be seen clearly. All of the computer images were in 3D and processed so they could go straight to the 3D printer without a hitch. Then the printing process began. The team used latex to create the puppet, and the finished look was phenomenal.

How 3D laser scanning works

3D laser scanning seems glamorous, but it wasn’t always easily accessible, and there weren’t many options for the information. In the 1960s, the first 3D laser scanning emerged, but it had so many kinks and was hard to use that no one adopted it until the late 1990s. At that time, one of the first 3D printers also came out. Together both of these technologies partnered and have created ways to do amazing things.

3D laser scanning works through lasers, which are being measured by the distance they travel. At the same time, rapid photographs of an object, scene, or person are being taken. It can collect information like dimensions on an item, texture, color, and anything in between. Then the data gets saved in the cloud and can never be erased.

From there, it can be edited and changed through the partnering system. The best thing is that from this point, the data has so many options. It can be 3D printed, turned into virtual reality, or sent across the world as a file for someone else to do these things.

Final thoughts

3D laser scanning creates one of the best ways to gather information and then save it and share it. Everything can be sent easily to someone else across the globe. Anything that may not be easily accessible becomes easier to get. This unique tool allows us to create better entertainment and more accurately.
