Complete 3D Scanning to 3D Printing Workflow

I have completed a series of tutorials on the workflow of taking a 3D object from scanning to outputting to a 3D printer. This series begins by exploring the 33D scanning process with a NextEngine 3D Laser Scanner and the ScanStudio HD software. Topics covered are the initial scan, trimming and aligning scans, and fusing the scans into one mesh before exporting. Next, I explain how to edit the object in Blender, outlining common problems that relate to the 3D printing process and how to fix them if needed. After exporting from Blender, another video covers how to make the mesh watertight and fix other issues in netfabb Studio. Finally, the series ends with how to open the STL file from netfabb in MakerWare and print on a Makerbot 3D printer.
