My commercial photography and video shoot for Backface (a creative 3D scanning and printing company based in the heart of Fazeley Studios in Digbeth, Birmingham) was a real eye opener to the amazing world of 3D scanning and printing. I was invited to collect content for their website which they would also share on various social media platforms. The video content was then edited by Neil Hughes.
Backface creates a 3D scan with a rig consisting of 96 DSLR cameras, the scan data is a massive 1812 Megapixels (one of the UK’s largest photogrammetry rigs that’s used to 3D scan people!). The 3D images can then be converted into 3d prints for a variety of applications: from figurines for wedding cake toppers, graduations, birthday or sporting competition wins, work colleagues or bands. The finished results are very like ceramic and are treated with resin to preserve and strengthen them.
Fun fact: Backface Studios is also a world record holder they were challenged by popular television program ‘The Gadget Show’ to attempt to break the world record for the tallest 3D printed human (2m tall). The show's presenter - Jon Bentley was their subject they are now the current Guinness World Records holder for the tallest 3D printed sculpture of a human – measuring 2m 5cm. Congratulations to Backface!
