3D scanning and replicating

For our first project, which involved 3D scanning a small sculptural object using the 3D scanner, I was inspired by architect Zaha Hadid and developed small chess pieces which communicate through a sculptural format. 

 From the pieces that I had made out of Ren foam, I selected the queen to scan and replicate using the 3D scanner since it plays well with light and shadow. I took the piece and using Rhino, then contoured the body in order to cut it up and prepare it for laser cutting. Dowel holes were added for structure and alignment.
