Rubicon 3D scanner Simple and cost-effective 3d scanner. Rubicon 3D is a simple, yet powerful 3d scanner that will enable its users to turn real world objects into virtual 3d models. How it works: Webcam takes a picture of an object on the turntable with both lasers on and off, then the software looks for differences in those pictures to detect the shape of your object. Next the turntable turns 0.45 degrees and the process repeats. 800 steps for a full 360° revolution.

Neurosynaptic chips Because these neurosynaptic chips are small and low-power with corelets enabling sensory perception, a whole new range of applications can be built. Below are some conceptual designs that the team has envisioned: An autonomous robot in the shape of a sphere with multi-modal sensing, including image and sound, could be deployed in a disaster area for search and rescue missions. An internal mechanism would allow it to roll around an environment to survey areas and identify persons in need, the condition of the zone and possible hazards. It could also communicate with people it finds and guide them to safety through speakers and a video display. Areo - Areograph 100% Photo-Realistic environments The Areograph technology transforms a series of photos into a 3D scene -complete with underlying geometry- which can be freely explored on a computer or console. No digital artist can truly capture the wealth of variety inherent in real environments, but with the Areo technology you don't miss a detail because what you see is what you get.

3D Printing Materials FDM Thermoplastics Stratasys patented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology works with production-grade thermoplastics to build tough, durable parts that are accurate, repeatable and stable over time. 3D print your concept models, prototypes, tools and end-use parts in familiar materials like ABS, PC and high-performance ULTEM 9085. PolyJet Photopolymers 3D Scanning Two Types of ObjectsThe MakerBot® Digitizer™ Desktop 3D Scanner is an amazing tool that quickly turns things in your world into 3D models you can modify, improve, share, and 3D print. Scannable objects fall into two categories: Ready-to-Scan and Prep-to-Scan. In this post, we’ll help you determine which category an object’s in, and share some expert tips and tricks to help you create the best possible 3D models. Ready-to-Scan A Ready-to-Scan object is exactly what it sounds like.

Our RISD — Earlier in the month, outgoing President John... Earlier in the month, outgoing President John Maeda presented Post-digital: the past, present and future of design and technology, an insightful (and at times humorous) talk aimed at RISD students. In front of the packed auditorium in the Chace Center, the former MIT professor gave an overview of his early artistic experiments and some personal thoughts on the how creativity, art and design will help improve our ever-changing world. Before the start of the presentation, Student Alliance President Rosa Glenn 14 TX and Graduate Student Alliance President Diana Wagner MID 14 gave Maeda a warm welcome. “As you’ll hear in his lecture [President Maeda] is enthusiastic, relentlessly inquisitive and is a model for how to ask questions that cannot be answered,” noted Glenn. Wagner echoed her heartfelt sentiments: “To the rest of the world, President Maeda is known as an author, a graphic designer, a computer scientist, an artist and an academic.

3d data acquisition Development is done through the R&D company 3DDynamics. The Company’s strength is in it’s 12 years of R&D in the field of data acquisition the advanced 3d algorithms including it’s “SteadyScan” motion-compensation algorithm compensating for heartbeat and breathing. Resulting in highly sophisticated, accurate, flexible and competitive 3dscanners.

About Fortus 900mc 3D Prototyping Machine Rethink Everything The Fortus 900mc 3D Production System builds durable, accurate, repeatable parts as large as 914 x 610 x 914 mm (36 x 24 x 36 in.). With nine material options, it’s suitable for building fixtures, factory tooling and end-use parts, as well as the most demanding 3D prototyping. CVG @ ETHZ - Research Distortion in Multiple View Geometry Multiple view geometry is well-understood for the case of ideal pinhole cameras and many algorithms exist to estimate epipolar geometry, trifocal tensors or homographies. In this research we focus on the problem of multiple view relations between images with radial distortion. One important case is e.g. in sequential approaches where one registers an unknown image (potentially with radial distortion) to a set of previously calibrated images.
