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.





Creative pipeline

CAD drawings to evaluate 'cake engineering' and correct number of portions 1hr

Baking, sculpting and painting 2 days

3D scanning and mesh optomisation 4hrs

Producing animated content for projection mapping 6hrs

Producing animated content for augmented reality 4hrs

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.
