3-D Scanning Process: This object was scanned with the MakerBot. Both pieces were scanned separately and then combined with the multi-scan feature of the MakerBot. Due to the size, the two separate pieces, the texture of the piece, and the limitations of the scanner, this object could not be scanned in its entirety. The handle, which can be seen in the photograph, could not be completely scanned.
