Using five MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, Fred Kahl, aka The Great Fredini, created a complete, accurately scaled model of Coney Island’s Luna Park as it stood in 1914. A year in the making, this 3D model is now on display at the Coney Island Museum. Mr. Kahl will share his process using MakerBot Replicator 3D printers and how he managed to achieve the accurately scaled model. While pursuing his re-creation of Luna Park, Kahl also explored 3D scanning and invented The Scan-O-Tron 3000 Full Body 3D Scanning Rig. To help fund his ambitious Luna Park model, Kahl launched a Kickstarter campaign for a pop-up business, the Coney Island Scan-A-Rama 3D Portrait Studio. Using his invention, Kahl creates 3D portraits of customers that are then displayed in the Luna Park model at Coney Island Museum.
