writes "I've been involved in the design of parts of an easy-to-use, low-cost 3D scanning system. It captures full colour, accurate 3D object data in minutes, using a unique approach specifically developed for 3D object scanning. Using a combination of low-resolution and high-resolution scanning methods to minimise problems associated with surface reflections. For robustness the object profile is used to rapidly build an approximate model, followed by a novel white-light scanning technique to capture surface detail. A bespoke scanning head does this without the use of expensive projectors or complex optics which is key to the compact and low-cost design.
