Looking on Internet I try to find the easiest way to make a 3D scanner.
How many options did you find?
Mainly I found two ways for making a homeade 3D scanner:
- The first one is to print a rotative platform, and use the cell phone in order to take photos while the platform is rotating. For do that, I found this model, and I started to printing it. The problem is the size of some of the parts, that are bigger than I can print. In addtion to that, you must use a software that merge the photos in order to obtain the 3D model like Autodesk 123D Catch. Another disadvantage is that you can only use this kind of scanner with small pieces.
- After digging more deeply, I found two programs that allow you to use Xbox 360 Kinect in order to scan 3D models. I am going to explain this option on the lines below.
