How to Print a Photo with a 3D Printer

3D Printed Photo

The typical source content for a 3D printer is an STL file, it comes from two main sources, a new design modeled with 3D CAD software or 3D digital information captured from a real part using a 3D scanner. Here at Javelin we tried an alternative…
