Sketchfab 3D Scanning Challenge: Food

Back to overview

Don’t play with your food – scan it! This month’s 3D scanning challenge is for all the gastronomically inclined – we want you to share your favourite dish in glorious 3D. Maybe it’s your grandma’s famous spaghetti Bolognese, your favourite dessert, an order from your local takeaway restaurant – if you can eat it, why not scan it?

Update – Winner: Banoffee recipe by R0m1R



TL;DR: Scan your favourite food, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #foodscanchallenge
