3D scanning with mini projectors


CHSOS just added 3D scanning by Structured Light using a mini (pico) projector coupled with the “3D scanning software” developed by Daniel Moreno and Gabriel Taubin. The free software can be downloaded from Brown University School of Engineering. I need to thank Daniel for his support with the software. Pico projectors are extremely small: a fraction [...]

3D modeling for Art, Architecture and Archaeology


We do run a lot of initiatives, Stay on top of things! Contributed by Camilla Perondi and Giacomo Vianini In this post we want to talk about Photomodeling, that is the creation of 3D models from 2D pictures taken with an ordinary camera. This method is a cost-effective alternative to laser scanning , [...]
