First on Wikipedia’s List of common 3D test models is a mesh that Ivan Sutherland’s team made in 1972, a hand-“scanned” VW Bug. I haven’t been able to find anywhere it can be downloaded. Some people seem to have it (most recently saw it used in Keenan Crane’s vid on Heat Methods in Geometry Processing) but, somewhat understandably, none of them seem willing/able to respond to a rando emailing a polite but out-of-the-blue request for the file.
Does anybody here have it? Of course I’d prefer it in a format that can be imported into Blender, but any help appreciated.
