The Photon by Matterform - The world’s first, affordable 3D scanner for anyone! If you've ever wanted a 3D scanner now's your chance. By pledging support to this project, you can have your very own Photon 3D Scanner.
Created by Dhairya Dand and Robert Hemsley, the project seeks to develop gestures to evolve three-dimensional surfaces using 2.5D interaction. Learning from existing displays which are two-dimensional and using optical illusion and depth sensing cameras, the flat elastic surface is used as a way to manipulate surfaces and objects in three-dimensional space. The project is called ‘Obake’ (o-baa-keh) imagines what if our screens were elastic, we could literally pinch and pull them.
Volumental is the quickest and easiest way to scan and share 3D models of anything you want - people, objects or rooms. Your 3D model can be shared or embedded in any webpage just like a video clip. All you need is your depth camera - Volumental runs directly in your browser. You just move the camera around the object or room while recording, and Volumental takes care of the rest. Volumental started as a robotics research project at the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, with the aim of advancing robotics research while being useful to everyday people.
You may have seen those fascinating 3D models that seem to have replaced the normal shape with a strange, smooth skeletal networked form. The complex structures seem impossibly difficult to design with conventional 3D modeling tools, and indeed they are. Perhaps they've been made with mathematical 3D model generation tools operated by a PhD? Sometimes this is the case. But did you know there's an easy way to do this yourself with almost any 3D model? We found tutorials describing how to create "Voronoi" shapes.
TinkerCad has now added a scripting function, allowing you to generate shapes using expressions and algorithms — this could lead to some very interesting experiments! We are excited to announce that it is now possible to write Shape Scripts directly inside the Tinkercad editor and create shapes that are generated programmatically. While the scripts are written in the editor the actual scripts are executed by the distributed Gen6 geometry kernel running on the Tinkercad server cluster. We believe this is what cloud computing is at its best, harnessing great power through an extremely easy to use browser interface.
MeshUp is the first real volume modeler for meshes. We want to make life easier for 3D printing and for creators. At Uformia we envision a very different experience for users, where without effort, a creator can be sure that their models are always ready for 3D printing.
This free of charge software solution allows 3D enthusiasts various options - such as scanning for 3D printing, modeling, prototyping construction, graphics and game design. Commodity items, rooms, figures and real persons can all be scanned using your live moving sensor and the new SCENECT app. Operates with Microsoft Kinect for Xbox and Asus Xtion PRO Live Is based upon the professional laser scan software SCENE
Expanding 3D printing beyond the build volume. Chopper was developed by Linjie Luo, Ilya Baran, Szymon Rusinkiewicz, Wojciech Matusik of Princeton University as a way to readily make 3D prints larger than the a 3D printer’s build volume. The software divides the model into logical sections and automatically prepared joints for easy assembly and gluing. Watch the video to se how it works. Via Shapeways
(First part: Enhancing openscad with the attach library ) Introduction There is one very common operation that has to be done in nearly all the designs: beveling edges . It can be done on the convex side , for avoiding sharp edges, or on the concave side , for reinforce the part (avoiding the 90 degrees connection between parts). With the bevel library I am developing doing these two operations is a piece of cake.
Sébastien Korczak a réalisé ce scanner 3D en utilisant un tourne-disque dont il a modifié la partie motorisation pour pouvoir la piloter à l’aide d’un kit Arduino . Sur la plateforme en rotation , on retrouve un appareil photo et un pointeur laser qui balaye la zone à scanner . Éléments de constitution un appareil photo avec une fonction enregistrement ( resol de 640×480, 30 images par secondes). un pointeur laser avec un diffuseur pour afficher une ligne. un tourne-disque modifié au niveau du moteur avec un moteur pas à pas piloté par kit Arduino .

La création de modèles en 3D est un travail long et ardu, il nécessite de bonnes compétences ; en d'autres termes, il faut d'excellents artistes/graphistes. Pour faciliter cette tâche, on peut avoir recours aux scanners 3D, mais c'est onéreux et pas très facile à utiliser. Pourtant, la technologie de la barrière laser n'est pas très compliquée. Le site suivant vous propose de fabriquer un scanner 3D simple à partir d'une webcam, d'un pointeur laser, d'un moteur et de quelques engrenages.
3D models in Google SketchUp look great, but with a few extra plugins the results can look photo-realistic. In this tutorial we’ll cover our experience with the Maxwell for Google Sketchup rendering plugin. The Maxwell Fire engine is easy to use. It’s integrated directly into SketchUp so you don’t need to open any other application to render photo-realistic images of your models.
With the right technology, 3D printing is child’s play. PotteryPrint is a truly exciting new iPad app that lets children use a virtual pottery wheel to create completely unique works of art ready for 3d printing. The PotteryPrint team is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter to take their prototype to deployment. They’ve got 20 days and $10,000 to go. You can support the project for as little as $1 , and they’ve got some great pledge rewards including a home-baked dozen of your favorite cookies! I talked to Brian, Cameron and Shlok from PotteryPrint to find out more about this app, their inspiration behind the project, and their thoughts on the intersection of technology and childhood education.
More Kinect scanning tools in the works I’ve been having fun doing 3D scans with the Kinect and ReconstructMe for a few weeks now. I was just beginning to wonder what other software might pop up in the future, when someone from Matherix Labs invited me to try 3Dify. Matherix 3Dify is a new Kinect scanning tool that aims to be a simple, low-cost way to make 3D scans of things. It doesn’t have the GPU-intensive real-time model capture of ReconstructMe, but it has a GUI, which might make it a good choice for the less technically-inclined.
Amy Buser Reconstructed People have been using the Microsoft Kinect with 3D printing for a while now using excellent programs like Kyle McDonald’s KinectToStl . However, until recently, most programs can only capture one side of an object which creates a kind of relief sculpture.
