3D Scanning and Printing ASAP Science Hosts

3D Scanning and Printing ASAP Science Hosts

Posted by on Aug 23, 2023

Mitch and Greg from ASAP Science came to MY3D Agency to learn more about 3D scanning and printing for an episode of their online show. Mitchell Moffit (born: March 27, 1988) and Gregory Brown (born: September 25, 1988) are better known online as AsapSCIENCE. They’re a Canadian YouTube duo that uses science to answer questions proposed in their videos. Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown are better known online as AsapSCIENCE. These young scientists asked around and found My3D Agency is a leader in 3D Imaging and Printing, a process they were seeking to explore in order to secure lifelike 3D figurines of themselves. The duo have been creating science videos on their YouTube channel and their program, The Lab, attracts hundreds of thousands of viewers every week. The hosts have posted a video on YouTube that shows the highlights of their visit to My3D Agency, describes how 3D imaging works and best of all shows the final results as they unbox their characters live on the show. 3D printing will lead to ‘mass personalization’ Mitch and Greg were able to simplify the process and showed how these characters are created by using bread slices as an example. It was fascinating to see the process uncovered by a team that can put complex thoughts, ideas and processes into simple words. Watch the episode below, When the YouTube scientists headed to My3D Agency in Toronto to get 3D printed they were first asked to strike a pose. Greg decided to pose in a selfie position with his cell phone while Mitch held a 2-thumbs-up pose. While they were holding their positions a structured light 3D scanner was used to project a known pattern onto their bodies so that distortions and deformations could be analyzed through triangulation. This procedure shows how far away points are from the scanner so that a real-life character can be produced. Although this may sound complex, the team shows the equipment used and how everything comes together on the video. Basically, the scanner is able to construct the image in real time. It’s a fascinating process and as you watch things come together you’ll be anxious to...

MY3D Scans York Regional Police’s Unnamed Costumed Crime Fighter

MY3D Scans York Regional Police’s Unnamed Costumed Crime Fighter

Posted by on Aug 23, 2023

Last week MY3D Agency was invited to York Regional Police headquarters to 3D scan their new, and as yet unnamed, superhero.  That’s right, the police in York Region have their own supernatural crime fighter for which they needed a professional 3D scan to prove the concept. The iconic character was first conceived by Detective Anthony Torresan in pencil sketch doodles four years before being created by himself, and fellow officers Constable Cedrone, Constable MacRae and the York Regional Police media team. Working together, this group made the outfit in a few months, and now one public appearance at a time, they’re testing it. The police force needs a likeable mascot to help carry civic-minded messaging that might assist the force. Such costumed mascots can break the ice and become a voice in the community, and especially in the eyes and minds of the young people in York Region schools. Without hesitation, our Founder Michael Gossack accepted the York Regional Police force’s invitation to visit their shop and make 3D scans, and later to prepare a print-ready 3D file for their soon to be named creation.  3D scanning superheroes is one of MY3D Agency’s core services, and Michael been actively following the YRP mascot and development program since he met the freshly created character at Fan Expo in 2014. UNITED is a public safety campaign funded by a grant from the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (PAVIS). This body-armour encrusted character shines a light on the cooperation and collaboration needed between the community and the police. It is only by working lock-step the police can help change the social landscape that produces street gangs and crime. Peopled by volunteers, and paid for with a few thousand dollars from their media fund, the police have launched the outreach starting with a YouTube movie. In their short film embedded below, the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (PAVIS)’s yet-to-be-named YRP superhero fights the evil characters you see wearing red costumes, with the help of the community.  There is a equally fascinating ‘making-of’ video that shows the work that went into the production and the army of volunteers on set during the day and night. https://www.youtube.com/embed/ro783SF5o6w?rel=0...

Photographing 3D Printed Figurines

Photographing 3D Printed Figurines

Posted by on Aug 22, 2023

At the end of March 2018, MY3D AGENCY ventured down to Polson Pier to shoot pictures of 3D printed figurines with the City of Toronto in the background.  We got lucky finding this spot; the cement harbour block is part of the retaining wall, and came made-to-order for our photography shoot.  The block’s red graffiti spray paint added some nice colour in the foreground of our shots. The idea to shoot the figures against the city came about after a friend of MY3D AGENCY criticized the previous website homepage for being too Priestly. Have you got a better idea? Michael challenged. He did. We followed along, and here we were. It was ten degrees below zero the day we shot these pictures. Contrasting the six inch tall figurines against the backdrop of the city is a good visual juxtaposition that says ‘3D printing in Toronto‘ at a glance. That was the idea anyway. The CN Tower in the distant background is 553 meters tall. Sudden wind gusts kept blowing over the tiny statues, and this prevented us from setting up the figurines in a street scene or something more narrative.  Initially we were only shooting the statues with the widest bases.  Eventually we got eight statues in the shot. The image we used for the homepage displays a nice diversity that suggests the city is home to such a mosaic of interesting...

3D Printing Campbells Chunky Souper Heroes

3D Printing Campbells Chunky Souper Heroes

Posted by on Aug 22, 2023

In the first half of 2018, MY3D AGENCY custom-printed over two hundred and fifty small statuettes to embody the individuals who were confirmed as Campbells’ Souper Heroes in their recent advertising campaign, and social media outreach, where they asked the public to ‘Behold their Souper You’.  We can celebrate it now, proudly as the campaign comes to a close, and everyone is happy with the results. Here’s the story: Our little 3D printing company in Toronto got the nod to create a prize solution for Campbell’s Soup in September 2017.  When we got the call to tender bids, we went all in and gave a great price and plenty of guarantees; MY3D AGENCY was committed to making this work really well for everyone involved, because we knew it would do plenty to advance the cause of 3D printing in Canada. “Behold the Souper You” campaign promotes Chunky Soup.  The initiative makes use of a television commercial that encourages consumers eat good food in order to “release their inner souper hero.” Grand Prizes were John Deer garden tractor-sized snow blowers, and there were three of these dispensed across Canada.  The idea of making custom 3D prints of participants came about as an intermediary prize solution. Campbell’s wanted to recognize all the people who do great things on a daily basis, and so would reward two hundred winners with a colour 3D print of themselves boxed-up like a toy action hero. These unique prizes were made entirely by MY3D AGENCY with photos uploaded by contest winners. When users visited the MY3D AGENCY website page dedicated to Campbell’s Souper You campaign, they were greeted with a call to action that read, You’ve been identified as one of a select group of extraordinary people. Making the choice to put good stuff into the world is something we believe in too. Now help us honour you with your very own personal action figure. After which they were prompted to upload images of themselves. The Contest Demanded We Create a Custom 3D Printing Solution for the Masses Once the person registered their information on the site,  the staff here at MY3D AGENCY retrieved the information and...
