Free 3D Printable of the Week: Chewbacca

A little birdie told that there’s a new Star Wars flick coming out and that they even got Harrison Ford back to play the titular role of Chewbacca. I know that most of that sentence isn’t accurate and doesn’t even really make all that much sense, but, in honor of the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode VII, here we have a downloadable Chewbacca model.

This model was created by Sketchfab user Pixelio, associated with the recently launched Pixelio campaign on Kickstarter. Created by UK startup Smart 3D, Pixelio is a little automated Lazy Susan that, relying on a user’s smartphone, allows for steady 3D scans when complemented with apps like 123D Catch. The device can even be used to capture 360 photographs for VR. Here’s one taken by our Polish friends at CD3D. To learn more about Pixelio, check out previous articles on the subject. To learn more about Chewbacca, you’ve got some cultural catching up to do.
