I found a new way to get started with 3D printing if you haven’t had much experience with it in the past. With free online apps you can now 3D print your own head or just about anything else for that matter. All you need to do is take photos and upload it to the 123D app where it will create a model for you and then you can go and edit it using the different tools. There are 3D scanners available that would accomplish the same thing but taking photos is something more accessible for everyone to be able to do. I have found a step by step guide on how to do this so I am going to have a try at 3d printing/ getting a model ready to be printed of someones head with the help of the rest of my group.
The best thing about this app is that it is online so you don’t have to purchase the programme and it can run on any device that has access to the internet. Link to the instructions: http://makezine.com/projects/make-ultimate-guide-to-3d-printing/print-your-head-in-3d/
