Without damaging our reputation as ‘spammers’, we think the 3D Printing community could be very interested in our innovative Fuel3D, 3D scanner - it’s an easy-to-use, point-and-shoot device that allows for quick 3D image capture of objects or faces. These scans combine photo-metric and geometric data for high-resolution images at one-tenth of the price of its closest competitor ($1,000).
The Fuel3D operates in .STL, .OBJ & .PLY file formats ready for on-screen rendering and 3D printing. Check out our Kickstarter campaign here: http://kck.st/13ygzkR
Please interact with us in anyway that you can; whether that be through ideas you might have for using the Fuel3D, criticisms or support.
Now, i had seen a post about your project a couple days ago, but couldn’t figure out how it worked. Do you capture from only a single perspective (essentially creating a relief) or does the Fuel3D combine many perspectives into a single scan to create a full 3D model?
You’re right - the Fuel3D takes a scan from one direction of an object.
If you’ve not already seen on our Kickstarter campaign, we’ve teamed up with a software company called Uformia on a few of our pledges. These guys are currently developing software tools that will enable users to, quote, ‘seamlessly’ stitch multiple scans together. This will allow a 360 degree view of an object to be created.
