For this assignment you are required to make a 3D scan of a small object, and then print it out using a 3D printer. Ideally, I would like you to scan the object that you also made a silicone mold of so that you can understand the advantages and disadvantages of each process. I would also like you to scale the 3D prints to a significantly smaller size than the original. One of the advantages of making a 3D print is that we can alter the scale quite easily, wheras the silicone mold process only gives you an exact replica.
