Not sure if this is the right community to ask this question, but I’m hoping get some information on 3D printing items at larger scales. I just recently ordered a CR-10S (will arrive in a few weeks) and really want to print a life size human figure with costume. Almost all the articles/pictures I’ve been able to read about people doing something similar have used an actual life body scan, which I don’t have nor would want to use. My hope was that I might be able to use something like Daz/Poser to generate a low poly mesh in the desired pose, export it into Zbrush and have someone modify it/subdivide to add detail, then convert it over to a 3D print file to be cut into pieces.
I guess, what I’m really asking, is what type of polygon count would a life size piece need to have to be printed with good detail. The pieces would definitely be sanded, bondo filled, and primed before painting.
