To help promote the Kickstarter campaign for its £700 3D scanner, Fuel3D has enlisted artist Joshua Harker to create a 3D printed case for high-funding pledgers.

As with much of Joshua's 3D printed artworks, the case features intricate swirls within a central form – in this case a skull. Its design draws on the traditions of artwork linked to the Mexican festival Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) – though these designs are often today seen as being 'tattoo style', divorced from their original heritage.

“I am hugely impressed with the quality of the scans that I have seen from the Fuel3D scanner and am intrigued by the multitude of possibilities such a tool can bring to the table for artists,” says Joshua.

“The very reasonable price means that more people will be able to use the technology to get creative with 3D images and continue to push the medium in exciting new directions."
