Artist and educator Tom Burtonwood teaches at Columbia College and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. For showing all the wonderful architectural patterning and decoration in Chicago to the world Burtonwood created a 3D printed accordion book: Orihon.
Burtonwood says, "I have been thinking for some time how it would be nice to produce a 3D printed book of textures and reliefs. To publish and distribute all the wonderful architectural patterning and decoration we enjoy here in Chicago and beyond. This is the prototype for that idea.
"The subject matter for this book is derived from 3D scans made of sculptures and reliefs, found at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The scans were all produced using a regular DSLR camera and a software package called 123D Catch. By taking multiple digital photographs of a subject – the user is able to create a lifelike 3D scan of an object, person or architectural feature. 123D Catch is free to use and distributed by software company Autodesk."
The book was made in an accordion style format. The "front cover" explains how these reliefs were created, and has the Creative Commons License for the work. The "back cover" is a list of works. Burtonwood has made the book available via Thingiverse so feel free to remix or reuse these files to make this book.
