Vegreville Egg - Restoration

I had the privilege of helping the one and only Jim Blinn and the city of Vegreville to help them convert the data for the original Vegreville Egg created by Ron Resch, Robert McDermott & Jim Blinn.

My task was to convert the old database using of triangles to generate a mesh and blueprints of the egg so that they can be used for restoration and maintainence of the egg.

This project if special to me due to a number o reasons - getting a chance to interact with Jim, getting to know about graphics trivia and working with the original database ( piece of history)

A rendering of the converted mesh is shown below.
