3D Scanning on the Web! April 25, 2011

Posted by stuffilikenet in 3D Printing, Awesome, Brilliant words, Photography, Publishing Tools, Toys.

A website (http://www.my3dscanner.com) has a nifty little service that allows you to create a pointcloud (and therefore potentially a fully-realized 3D scan) from a series of photographs taken ~60 degrees apart.  You walk around it rather than rotating the object, so this can be used on a statue in a park, or a person holding very, very still.


Still very tricky, but the idea is great.  They have a helpful set of instructions on how to photograph correctly and another on how to make a 3D model out of the resulting point cloud.  Also, it’s all written in a friendly and cheerful tone, which is even better.
