    Default 3d laser scanner

    This company has a interesting scanner, it is set up to be integrated with solidworks or can be stand alone and export stl and vrml to other 3D programs.
    The claimed scanning resolution and time for the scan seem impressive.
    I put in a order for one so I will report on it.
    I won't have it till august though.

    Saw that posted here before. Interesting system and priced reasonable, but resolution seems a little low - .005 in macro mode but only .015 in std mode.

    Will be interested to hear how well it works!

    Yes

    http://www.kreon3d.com/

    Small and designed to be attached to 3-axis (or more) CNC machines. But still very expensive and not "integrated" to a specific 3D software with specially developed tools for manipulating the data collected.

    If nextengine got their product down to the size of the kreon.....

    You can stitch images together with the scanner so...if mounted in the shopbot you set up a grid file it may be easy to scan large objects accuratly.
    I ordered it becouse I woodcarve by hand some things I sell, and thought it would save me a lot of time if I could reproduce some of my work that sells.

    Mounting on the shopbot carrage would be easy.

    Will be involved in a 3D scanner test within next 3 months that use digital photos to develop 3D file. You take multiple pics and the software massages them into a file. Cost $500. Therodically you can use a hand held digital camera in the field and produce a usable file. One big advantage is size is porpotional and you have to define one dimension so file is readly scalable. Results will be posted on my site www.turningaround.org

    Thanks for the link Chris. I agree about the nextengine, its affordable and if only it were a little smaller.
    Keep us posted Art, sounds interesting.
