This model was made to show how texture mapping can be applied to complex geometry, for exhibition at the TCT show in 2011.
The model was printed on Callprint’s Zprinter 650 full colour 3D printer and was prepared for 3D printing using Magics RP. Ryan Whitaker, 3D technical specialist at Callprint, modelled the geometry while at College from an original Spitfire MkI. Texture
mapping the Spitfire involves creating a UV map to apply the 2D image to the surface of the 3D model
