Have you ever looked at some piece of art and wondered: is that an (oil) painting or merely a print? Well, now you will.
This tool will analyze art prints and create an extrusion pattern to mimic the appearance of layered paint.
You will say that 3D software could just as well lay down a painted
version of any print, and you'd be right, but this version is more like Papier-mâché and less about you.
3D printing can do it. [neutrinos_shadow, Sep 22 2021]
||Some great artists are able to use the 3-D layering of paint as part of the art, using it to cast shadows and create highlights as a kind of bass relief.
||I've been thinking about this for some time. A scan of a
painting can easily be bump mapped with freeware to get
the texture, and saved as an isosurface. From there, the
texture can be 3d-printed onto a flat surface the usual way,
and then the piece is fed to a UV printer to paint the colors
on. EDIT- the Artnet article is better. My method probably
won't capture the correct texture
||It occurs to me that this would be better for topographic printed maps.
