Scribblygum : 3D capture and print

Stephen BARRASS (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formDesign


The ‘ghost scribblings’ on the gum trees on Mount Ainslie are traces left by the larvae of the Scribbly Gum Moth (Ogmograptis Scribula) as it feeds and grows below the bark. These traces were photographed from every angle. The photographs were used to compute a 3D mesh with an image mapped on to the surface. The resulting digital model was then 3D printed in coloured acrylic to produce a 1:1 reproduction. This is an example of 3D photography and 3D printing as a documentation of natural heritage
