3D Scanned Tree Texture – Ideas For 3D Printing

In this gallery, we offer you to take a look at what can be done from 3D scanned tree textures to give you ideas for 3D printing. There are many trees that carry a piece of history, sentimental value, or that are rare varieties in some well-kept gardens. Even though we have a few free and premium files to download, we want to encourage visitors to use this idea together with the 3D printing technology to achieve the original and unique results using local trees.

Fastigiate Hornbeam – 3D Printed Pen Holder

A vast collection of interesting trees can be found in Kew Gardens (London). Fastigiate Hornbeam is unique and very suitable for 3D printing ideas. It has many branches and they are even in width. As this photogrammetry scan involved more than just bark texture, Meshroom, a 3D scanning software, was slightly moody to process the images. It took us three attempts before we achieved the desired result. This object can be turned into an original pen holder or decorative lamp for example.

Redwood Dawn – Ogre Mace

Here is another beauty from Kew Gardens (London). This tree is very short compared to others from the Redwood collection but it strikes with its unique curves. If there are Ogres in this forest, they would use it as a mace, no doubt. More images and files for 3D printing are coming soon.
