Very nice. I have a lightform, haven’t gotten around to using it yet, you beat me to the punch :slight_smile:

You don’t need a lightform for this - if you design your glowforge design digitally, you already literally have a projection map - you just need to connect your computer to a projector and project the image. I am using after effects to make the effects, and will be publishing a full 2 part tutorial series about how to make it interactive. :slight_smile:

Yeah this is just a $10 sheet of foam core. It kinda looks like ivory tho, hey?

That’s very cool! I can definitely see how that could come in handy for a theatre tech!

That is the coolest thing I’ve seen on here in a long time. Your photography is pretty amazing as well.

It’s really easy! I’m making a tutorial for my company that shows how to do this. I’ll post it here when it’s done.

Very inspirational! I never know what to expect when I open a topic/post, other than I know that I will be impressed. This projection mapped mandala proves that. Master Po is whispering in my ear. “Empty your glass grasshopper, you have much to learn”.
Beautiful!
