Support Cosmo Wenman's 3D Scanning Project

By Norman Chan

His goal is to scan sculptures at the Skulpturhalle Basel Museum in Switzerland and make the 3D files free.

Earlier this year, we profiled Cosmo Wenman, an artist who has made a name for himself performing high-resolution scans of museum sculptures with consumer software and creating life-size replicas using 3D printers and a unique finishing technique. Cosmo has just launched a Kickstarter to get him to the Skulpturhalle Basel museum in Switzerland, where he plans to scan 20 archetypal plaster sculptures and replicate at least one of them in life-size for a future 3D Printshow. The best part is that Cosmo plans to release these scans as copyright-free files on Thingiverse. It's a cause worth supporting.
