From Your Child's Drawing to 3D Print with Crayon Creatures

(Trying to bring it back from the brink of being "too serious"... via TJ Anderson)

Shapeways community member and design for 3D printing specialist Cunicode has just launched Crayon Creatures, a simple way to take your child's drawing to 3D print thanks to Shapeways 3D printing, because sticking your child's drawing to the fridge is so 2011.

With Crayon Creatures all you need to do is scan or photograph your child's drawing and upload it to be converted into a 3D form, 3D printed and sent to your door. Each drawing is 3d modeled based exactly on the drawing, not wrapped around a default form so every 3D printed figure is as unique as your child's drawing.

You can see a few of the Crayon Creatures already created in Cunicode's Shapeways shop.

1. The world is wide open for 3D printers

It is thrilling really.

2. Representation in two dimensions is its own thing

Paintings and drawings are not failed or incomplete sculptures. They are paintings and drawings.

3. Don't you fantasize about 3D prints of Hieronymus Bosch works?

6. I agree.

If the child wants a sculpture, you could always give them play doh instead of crayons.


One of the joys of drawing is that you don't need to follow the "rules" of physical objects.

5. Wow, Fantastic! Wonder what the result would be if you 3-D printed the Mona Lisa...

... or Monet's garden.
