This is a super quick and dirty tutorial for using 123D Catch to get a fast and easy easy 3D scan of your head. Once you have the scan or “catch” the tutorial will take you through a technique to clean it up and manipulate it for 3D printing.

Please note that the 3D printed plastic is not food-safe. The next step would be to use the 3D print to make a casting mold and cast it in a food-safe ceramic. A suitable tutorial for that next step can be found here: Lifecasting – hands.

The benefits of the technique used in this tutorial are efficiency and speed as well as the relativity gentle learning curve for those without experience in CAD (computer assisted design).
