The content of the scans are the participants themselves. Beheld 3D scans and 3D prints people, introducing 3D tech to the masses by utilizing the most relatable content: yourself.
Beheld 3D aims to use its 3D scanning technology to introduce 3D to the masses by creating outstanding virtual experiences. With a suite of 3D tools, Beheld not only creates the best experiences, but simplifies the process for consumers and artists to generate content. Beheld's 3D scanners instantaneously take a series of high-quality photos which are all stitched together to create 3D model files.
These files can be exported to a number of different mediums, including 3D printers and VR/AR environments.
Kat Kinkead gained her experience in 3D printing in 2012, when she was one of the first members of the team at to begin the design & build-out of Shapeways' 3D Printing Factory. Kat then worked with brands such as Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole and Coach, collaborating with senior designers to brainstorm innovative methods of design visualization and prototyping.
Kat believes that by enabling the community through 3D, we will give way to a culture where sustainable, personal & aesthetic expression are prioritized over products designed and manufactured in mass.
Kat is also a teacher at Eyebeam's Computational Fashion, a residency program that brings together designers, scientists & engineers to explore emerging ideas in 3D garmentry. At Eyebeam, the class focuses on generating powerful parametric tools that push the boundaries of aesthetics, ultimately contributing to the next evolution of 3D in the fashion industry.
