3D scanning does not have to require expensive equipment and software. Using photogrammetry techniques you can do quite a bit of scanning for free with just a camera and some free, open-source software. For lighting, a cloudy day is good or for small objects fluorescent lighting also casts very little shadow. You can also try […]

Over the internet, the CAD model was sent to a 3D Printer. The infant’s head was 3D Scanned, and then sent to another part of the planet to help make a 3D printed model, and save a life
Not everybody has a 3D printer at home. They still are not the easiest things in the world to use, especially for those of us without much in the way of technology or DIY skills. This is why we’re so excited about Dreambox— it’s an on-demand 3D printing vending machine that takes care of all […]
A 3D scanning type of device has been being discussed in the last year as an important leap in 3D printing technology and an important accessory to it. 3D Systems is releasing this $399 handheld scanner and is immediately available in Staples stores and Cubify. Below, its uses are displayed – it can scan the […]
Below, watch a little boy get a custom-fitted 3D-printed mask for his Halloween costume! First, his head is scanned from several different angles, then an engineer uses CAD (computer aided design) to build a duck bill that custom fits the boy’s head! Say goodbye to waiting in line at the Halloween store or crowding in […]
