As we wade deeper into October, we see a light flickering in the distance. With our feet sinking into the bog, sticking hard with each step, we see what looks like a disembodied head with glowing eyes! But, wait, it’s just a jack-o’-lantern. Phew. But who left it here? Far from civilization, stuck knee-deep in a bog, there’s only one thing to be done: make a 3D scan of the glowing gourd.
TL;DR: 3D scan a jack-o’-lantern using your preferred tools and software, upload it to Sketchfab, and tag it #JackOLanternChallenge.
