Papercraft by Bert Simons

Bert Simons is an amazing paper sculptor living in the Netherlands. His work is incredible, and there are some details about his technique and portfolio on his site.

One thing that is fascinating is his technique for 3d scanning. His early explorations in 3d modeling were done with a cheapie laser from a saw. After upgrading the laser and camera, he got better results.

He is apparently using Blender to do his computer compilation work of his three dimensional subjects.

There isn’t a huge amount of information about this great paper artist, so if you know more, add your comments below.

Have you tried something as bold as digitizing your girlfriend? Do you know of anybody doing stunning work in unusual media? What are your techniques for turning flat pieces of paper into objects in the round? What can you do with Blender? What is the best way to learn Blender? Add your coments, and submit your photos to the Make Flickr pool.
