My 3D Project with HP Sprout and Dremel

I have been desperately wanting a desktop computer for sometime.  I do love working on my laptop, but for my office a desktop is just so much better.  When I had the chance to partner up with HP and try out their new Sprout computer I was over joyed. I’m pretty sure I screamed when I read the email.  To be honest with you the computer has been nothing short of amazing.  I have been using it for a few months and am still finding new, amazing features everyday.

By the way, it’s touch screen!!! How cool is that? Plus, everything is cordless, the mouse, the keyboard… I love the clean, chic look it provides my home office.

unnamed[2]Sprout is the world’s first immersive computer is also a fully integrated desktop 3D scanner.  I was surprised at how easy it was to use.  When I first set it up I had fun playing around with the built in camera and scanner.  With Sprout 3D scanning solution and 3D object capture, you can grab something from the real world, manipulate it in the digital world, and bring it to life in physical space.

It was definitely exciting taking photos and playing around with 2d images.  Then came my task. To create a 3d product.  I had so much fun scanning different products and seeing what I could bring.  I tried a variety of things to find what worked.  I also called the helped desk, which I have to point out was seriously helpful.  I love know that the product I have comes with the option to get help when you need it.  I scanned everything from my face, to flowers to nail polish and more.


It is definitely worth noting that solid, white objects seemed to scan best for me.  I ended up going with a cup from my kitchen. I was able to scan it and then manipulate it to make it round.  Again, with help from the helpline they even gave me tips on how to add the base.  All of these things are options you can add when you go to print you item.  I played around and printed some smaller items, they didn’t take as long.  However, my mug did take quite a few hours. I feel asleep watching it print, haha so I’m not exactly sure how long.  In my video I did speed it up quite a bit, but you still get the idea. 🙂

The actually process is pretty simple.  You grab, mesh and create.  I loved being able to use the 3d printer to create 3d products.




You can also use applications like adobe illustrator and auto desk sketchbook to enhance your creations.  A few others you might consider trying are light stencil, sizeUp, stop motion, mischief, 3d workflow and video capture.

When using the sprout it lets you bring items from the physical world and manipulate them in the digital world.  Plus, I just really like the computer its self.  It truly is an all in one desktop, with 3d scanner, 3d design and 3d desktop.  I am so excited to continue using it and see what amazing creations I can come up with.


I’d also like to point out that the scanner on the HP Sprout gives you the opportunity to create really neat images that you can print that are 2D, such as wall paper, images, etc.  I will be creating some ‘memory boxes’ closer to the holidays and will make sure to share.

What project would you like me to make next? 

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, however all opinions are my own.  I truly love the HP Sprout and have been using it on a day to day basis. I only blog about products I would recommend.
