3D printing models for an earplug mold

The Plug

Created a novel method for the design and manufacturing of custom ear plugs and molded-ear inserts using iOS Face ID technology. By using the LiDAR sensors on Apple devices, I was able to create detailed 3D scans of my friends' ears and was able to fabricate with SLA 3D printers the required molds. Once the molds were printed, I was able to rapidly produce and improve on the scans.
