As part of my studies I recently started a new Houdini Project. It will be part of series of 5 objects which will be manipulated in 3D space somehow. The topic this time: melting. For the melted object I chose The Thinker by Rodin; which is fitting in someway.
The model is a 3D Scan from myminifactory.com, a sites that supplies models for 3D printing, made possible by photogrammetry.
