Hello everyone,

A number of people have asked me to forward the photoshop plugin link,
if I received it.
Dan was kind enough to send me the link, so I'll forward his message.
Thanks for everything

Would the person who sent out the link concerning the Photo Shop plugin
to convert a photo to a 3d image please re-send me the link.

Lexx, and all,

The PhotoShop plug-in mentioned in this note is extraordinary! Being a
PhotoShop user for the past 10 or so years this is one of the most
impressive plug-ins I have every come across and it is actually FREE. In a
matter of minuets I turned a 2d photo of our complex into a 3d diorama and
had it running on a SLA machine! To use it for the human form is a bit more
involved though.

        Dear Carl,

        The free download that was discussed can be found at:
        Goto Knoll Cybermesh (do not mind the remark that it is a Photoshop
        plug-in: a Windows version is included).

        Cybermesh converts grey values in any B&W bitmap file to heights,
        thus converting 2D photo's to 3D geometry. Output can be done as
        DXF polygon mesh. Do not expect 'real life' faces though: imagine
        for instance the difference between a white man with a black beard
        a black man with a white beard.

        The resulting polygon meshes can be machined very well
        using DeskProto !

        Best Regards,

        Lex Lennings.
