The good people at MakerBot industries have released yet another awesome gizmo in their expanding repertoire of DIY 3D printing stuff: the new Cyclops 3D Scanner Kit is a build-it-yourself simple 3D scanner, suitable for turning real stuff into virtual stuff so you can send it to your 3D printer and turn it back into real stuff.
It's a cute little scanner kit with lots of depth- just assemble the laser cut parts we supply, and add your Optoma EP-PK-101 PICO Projector, your PlayStation Eye or a Microsoft LifeCam, and an iPod touch or iPhone, (or alternate VGA video source) and you've got a small format, low cost 3D Scanner!
New! MakerBot Cyclops 3D Scanner Kit!
The technology behind this device is known as Structured Light 3D Scanning. This kit is for 3D scanning experimenters, as you will need to be a bit savvy to get the best results. If you dont feel comfortable manipulating 3D point clouds, look through the documentation to see if this project is over your head.
