We met artist Jay Jay Burridge whilst laser scanning a project in London and had some time to scan the above clay model. We worked with 3d modellers from escape studios to turn the scans into a 3d model complete with faces, vertices & splines. The dinosaur is going to be recreated on a larger scale for an artist installation in a London restaurant. To see more of Jay Jay's work click here.

The same techniques can be useful for bringing architectural carving or other complicated geometry into a 3DS Max/Revit environment.
