Maker Idea #2. Laser Cut a 3d Scanned Sculpture

MakeHaven has three lasercutters and a 3d scanner. You can create a model or scan an object which you slice in Autodesk’s 123D Make software. This generates a pattern you can use to make fantastic cardboard sculptures.

You can even capture the 3d model by doing a 3d scan.
