First open source D3D scanner from 3D Creations. Jan.4, 2013 3D Creations, a Milwaukee-based reseller of affordable 3D printers and 3D scanners, is currently developing a low-cost open source 3D scanner - they named it D3D 3D scanner, to help businesses and consumers with measurement, quality control, reverse engineering and product design.

In December 3D Creations demonstrated their first complete prototype of structured light 3D scanner at Milwaukee Makerspace. The scan results looked really good and the accuracy was excellent.

You can find more pictures on the Flickr gallery. 3D Creations is asking for help from communities to support this young team to design and make a great 3D scanner: you can help to fill out this short survey of "The Scanner of Your Dreams". 3D Creations are planning to launch a Kickstarter in mid-2013 to begin production for the first open source 3D scanner that's high-quality & low-cost 3D scanner. 本站所有文章版权归3ders.org所有,未经许可不得翻译或转载。 Unlock the Power of 3D Scanning.

Endless Chair design

Cosa possiamo fare con un vecchio robot industriale in disuso? Probabilmente destinarlo alla raccolta di rifiuti speciali… ma non se ci chiamiamo Dirk Vander Kooij! Dirk Kooij è un designer olandese che ultimamente sta facendo parlare di sè per la sua sedia Endless, realizzata grazie al recupero di un vecchio braccio industriale. Un robot della serie FANUC (gli addetti ai lavori lo conosceranno) trovato sporco e abbandonato.

Dal punto di vista del design, la sedia non è tra le più accattivanti presenti nel panorama di sedute contemporanee, ma il quid del progetto sta sicuramente nel recupero del braccio industriale. Un’estrusione continua di una plastica riciclata pronta, strato dopo strato, a comporre l’opera finale. Il lavoro di Dirk Vander Kooij lo trovo, per questi motivi, estremamente attuale e intelligente, con un prodotto finale sostenibile da due punti di vista, uno più importante dell’altro. 3D Modeling with Your Hands Using an XBOX Kinect hack - SolidSmack. Like you, there’s one thing I’ve always wanted… massive freaking shoulders.

That, and a chest cavity deep enough for dips. The first may not be so far off. Leave it to Ethan Rublee and a group of researchers at Temple University’s Computer Fusion Laboratory to become captivated by the possibilities around the hands-free manipulation of the XBOX kinect. Here, they demonstrate how they’re shrouding math and engineering in cool tech to trick children into liking it whereby birthing a future race of disproportionate desk jockeys with giant meatball shoulders and atrophied legs. Sly, sly researchers. This year, to create a contrast between the gaming technologies, using OpenNI we integrated the XBOX kinect into Play-Doh to track a users hands instead of a physical tool, like the control pen.

Yes folks, you too can have a desk that is a complete mess while pushing geometry around with your feelers. Kinect News via Charles Culp who already has massive man shoulders that could crush you. 3D Printing Service i.materialise. Materialise: Driving Your Innovations. Proto Labs Part Upload.
