Replicating Robin Bäckman’s Sunglasses

This isn’t a video we’d normally show at because, well, it’s a little bit nutty. But, its nutty in a good way, and it’s just too funny. At the same time, it does highlight the power of 3D printing. Robin Bäckman (whom I know nothing about) made a video of himself designing and 3D printing a replica of his current sunglasses. He shows the process of taking photos of the glasses, importing them to Inkscape and then taking that file and bringing it into Blender to create the STL file. Then, he prints them on his RepRap 3D printer.

I apologize for the crude moment at minute 5:00.
