In this project students will be digitising nature using 3D scanning technologies, before turning the digital data into 3D printed jewellery pieces. The process involves following a tutorial to learn about the different things you can do with 3D scan data in Meshmixer software. This is followed by a creative journey where students use a design method called visual combinations to gather feedback from a certain target audience to inform their jewellery designs, which are brought to life through an iterative process.
