This looks incredible! Sorry about the uneven base. I've not attempted to add a plinth or flat base to models like this one as I'm still getting the hang of 3D modeling via Photoscan. In this instance and others, it was the grass around the base that was blowing around that made Photoscan just arbitrarily clip it unevenly and I didn't want to remove part of the monument before sharing it. If I had, while the printing would have been easier it would have taken away part of an element that belonged to the composition. If anyone wants to remix or alter it I figured it was best to present the original item as-is and let them go from there.

Thanks! No problems with the uneven base! It's easy to tilt the model and push it a little bit into the virtual print bed on the printing program, so it automatically cuts the base straight and flat. I wanted to tilt it a bit just so the model would be cut as little as possible, because the bottom of it was already slightly slanted, and I think it looks better now that it doesn't stand perfectly upright.

Great job once again, Jerry! Thanks for sharing! :)

I'm printing the model at the moment. I'll post a pic when it's finished, if it turns out good! Please upload .stl versions of your previous scans too if you find time. Thanks!

I can't wait to see it if it turns out good! I'm going to start working backwards to make sure I get .stl copies of my past models created and uploaded too. I've been trying to make sure that I include .stl versions of the models I make more recently. Thanks for the compliment.
