I've recently read about plastic surgery and came across the information, that a lot of doctors make use of 3D models to show their patients what to expect. I understand that there are 3D scanners involved most of the time though.
What I want to do
Since I have some experience creating 3D models with [3D Studio Max] and [Inventor], and I also have a some free time ahead, I thought about modeling myself in 3D. Preferably in a way, that I can change certain parameters to alter my look digitally and play around a little.
What I know so far
I came across Smith Mirco Software Poser, which seems to be the perfect fit. However it costs around 80$ for students, which I am not yet willing to pay without knowing what to expect. I already have 3D Studio Max at my disposal, but it seems a litte too difficult to get the results there (assuming that I use box modeling).
Which software would you suggest?
