This week we focussed on the design of the 3D scanner. This is prototype V2. We can manually adjust the distance between the object and the 2 webcams and we can we can adjust the position of the webcams. We will lasercut this prototype 4 times next week. The software for the shooting of the pictures and the turning of the… Read more →

Each time the plate will turn a bit and then two webcams will shoot… Read more →
