3D scanners are devices for capturing objects in 3D . Used to generate 3D objects for CNC machining , 3D models ( wireframe / meshes ) or to capture facial characteristics for facial recognition systems . The newest systems can capture in an instant using software ,a projector and a camera . Many hobyists are producing their own systems . Some by way of the Microsoft Kinect motion capture gaming system . Prices are falling . Inovations are coming quickly . 3D printing is also advancing quickly with many home made and industrial devices of all price ranges . Jun 25

What is FlatBed 3D? FlatBed 3D is a high precision 3D scanner that allows you to 3D capture objects by fitting a dual laser scan module on a coordinate type table such as a CNC router/mill/lathe. Along with a supplied USB controller (STEP&DIR) you can use your existing CNC machine to 3D scan objects using FlatBed 3D.
Real View 3D Desktop Scanner – PC Gadgets
Real View is working on a desktop 3D scanner. Considering large flatbed scanners are abundant, even included in multifunction laser printers that office support staff use, the mainstream use of a desktop 3D scanner would be a real technological advance. With a 3D scanner, you aren’t confined to just scanning documents. Instead, place your object of interest on the rotating platform while overhead cameras digitize the object in 3D. The advantages of this system are enormous.

NDI VicraSCAN Handheld 3D Laser Scanner - 3D Scanning
In this very short article I want to show you how to achieve some fairly decent 3D scans for under $200 using AgiSofts PhotoScan software.. The software its self is very simple and the photos can be taken from any positions, providing that an object to be reconstructed is visible on at least two of the images. Both image alignment and 3D model reconstruction is fully automated so there is no need for lengthy calibration processes. For this example I've used my good friend and co worker Andy Turner you can check out some of his animation work here Supermachine Here you can see Ive taken 9 photographs using my Nikon D80.
3D Scanning on a Budget
3d scanning has a wide range of applications; the most common are for 3d inspection, reverse engineering and 3d scans for medical applications, as FLAAR Mesoamerica is a research institute dedicated to evaluating digital imaging capture and printing it is in its interest, the new technologies on 3d scanning and 3d printing. And it is evaluating how 3d scanners can by utilize for architectural reconstruction, conservation in archaeological cultural heritage preservation and ethno-botany and ethno-zoology research. In the next pages, you will find a wide range of products of 3d laser scanners, portable 3d scanners, handheld portable 3d laser scanners, long-range 3-dimensional scanners and digitizers.
