Great 3D scans

Recommended Posts

This is pretty cool, I didn't know sites like this existed; the price doesn't seem unreasonable considering the investment it would take to get good digitization of larger things like a person. We have a ROMER coordinate measure machines at work with a freakin laser scanner head, when it's not being used for experimentation I'm totally going to scan away, anyway that thing was something like 100k. Also, it takes a while to render the digitizations and do some touch-ups so I suppose you are also paying for someone else's time. Thanks for the post.

hm, I can't find anywhere where they show the topology on the models... haven't seen too many scans with decent topology that can be used for anything other than a static pose, so that makes me worry. But the price is good, unless you need to use it commercially.

"Nice scans!! better than my Kinect setup". Haha, yeah I would hope so with 80 cameras capturing the scene instead of just one :p

The scans look very similar to what Infinite Realities make, not sure if it's the same guys: http://ir-ltd.net/blog/

Hmm... now that I take a look at their site again it looks like they've launched a marketplace of their own: (NSFW!) http://www.triplegangers.com/

Either way, I think both produce some pretty high quality stuff. I tried a couple of demos from the site above a while back in my Rift and it's pretty crazy the detail you can see. At one point I was moving through the scene and turned around to find myself face to face with the model real close up and I instinctively jerked my head back because it felt like I was invading personal space, very convincing.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
