A3D scanning dual-purpose cake, as a showpiece cake as well as to use a as a test subject with regards to , Projection Mapping and Augmented Reality.
As a starting point Thomas Milvaux of TMLVX was kind enough to share his 3D FBX model as a 3D reference, thanks Thomas, we couldn't have done it without you in the limited time available.

AR (Augmented Reality) test, tracking the cake itself from the 3D scan, rather than replying on a graphics-based marker/tracker
Projection Mapping test. In this instance there were a couple of tests, working with a 3D scanned mesh as a template, and projecting onto a rotating cake, the former was successful, the later needs more R&D.
