David Laserscanner

Following series of posts about “amateur” high tech experiments I would like to present David.

“DAVID is a freeware software for laser range scanning. All you need is a PC, a camera (e.g. a webcam), a background corner, and a laser which projects a line onto the object you want to scan. So everyone can use it to scan objects without high costs; this is the big advantage over commercial solutions which are rather expensive. ”

So basiclly with stuff you have at home you can get 3D scanned model from anything you like. Great work done by Dr. Simon Winkelbach and Sven Molkenstruck from the Institute for Robotics and Process Control, Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany.
