Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a design with 3D scanning, part of Learning 3D Printing.
…In this video, I'll introduce the three main types of consumer scanning hardware.…The first method of 3D scanning is called photogrammetry.…This is the technology that's at work in Autodesk's 123D Catch and ReCap Pro.…All you need is a camera or even just your smartphone.…You start by taking ten to 50 photos of an…object, moving slowly in a circle and capturing from both…high and low angles.…Photogrammetry processes the photo set and extrapolates…a 3D mesh from the two-dimensional photographs.…
It's a great way to scan an object…with equipment that most people already have on hand.…And it produces both a 3D mesh and a UV map that includes color information.…Second is turntable scanning. This is a MakerBot Digitizer,…and it's a great example of a turntable laser scanner.…Laser scanners have three components, a camera, a laser, and a turntable.…The laser projects a line onto the object, and the…camera records the image of the laser line as it turns.…
The software triangulates this information into a point…cloud, and a mesh is created by optimizing and…
