New Disney technology will make your 3d models have a perfect hair and stable spin when you print them

... if they ever release them to public. Now they are just papers, calculations and presentations with no public code.

Disney presented two new technologies related to 3d printing. First one is more accurate hair 3d capture and reproduction and second is optimization of the models internal mass so they can be spun perfectly on one axis.

Now the 3d scanning and 3d printing of human figures in Disney will be more detailed for hair:

3d models can be optimized so that the moment of inertia is balanced in 3d printed objects:
