3d scanning party @ home

Well last sunday I organized a 3d scanning “party” at my house. I invited everyone that had kids to come a long and get them scanned, so we can print out some nice faces and give them to grandparents and alike :-)
This was my first test with 36 raspberries and everything from a software perspective worked fine. I did have a hard time with getting good and enough light.
I only had some time on monday to process some of the images and did notice that the modelling software had a hard time picking up the back off people, so I need to fix that. I was planning to add a laser with a lens cap that projects many points, to generate more references for the modelling software.
This friday I will be setting up again at the Groningen Makerfaire. I will have more space there and also hopefully more light. So I can start scanning people at large on saturday when the makerfaire is open to the public.

Get scanned at the Dutch Makerfaire!

Would you like a free 3d scan of yourself? Come visit us at the Groningen Makerfaire in the Netherlands on October 12th.

If all goes well, there will be a 37 Raspberry pi setup. 36 with cameras and one for control and processing. The 36 raspberries will take a synchronised snapshot of you in a flash that you can then process with 123d Catch, Recap Photo, VisualSFMAgisoft photoscan or any other software you find (please tell me).

My first samples

I am still working on the 3d scanner setup. Hopefully for next week’s makerfaire I will have all 36 cameras up and running. I did already do some test shoots with less cameras and already very happy with the result.
