I lost my older brother in the summer of 2015 after a bad accident. I had a 3D scan of him that I took while I was visiting home during the previous winter, so I used that 3D scan, and my 3D printer, to print a bust of him for his memorial. 3D printing can do more than just create small fidget toys, it can be used to bring back memories of our loved ones.
Thank you everyone for you kind words, it really means a lot to me and my family.
If anyone is curious about the technical details of the 3D scanning process, you can see my write up about using an XBox Kinect as a 3D scanner here.
