Sparky is a large remote control vehicle that fire departments use at events to help them teach children fire safety. Here is one of the images that I took at the Montgomery County Fair (Maryland).

Here is the video that shows the resulting 3D object rotating in space of my first attempt to capture Sparky. Only 6 images were successfully stitched in my first attempt.
Fortunately, I was able to go back to the fair and take another series of images. This is the result of the second attempt.
As you can see, this one was MUCH better than the first. And, it is this "Catch" that I used in my 3D Printer test. Notice, however, that the light on the top still gave the engine some problems, creating some holes in the mesh.
Here is the final print done on my RapMan 3.2. The Cube would produce a smoother outcome. But, this is good enough to show you that it is possible to create and print a 3D model of real objects without having to draw a thing!
