Hi, came across this tonight during my software trawling and thought .. now that’s interesting and cheap.. and I like cheap, I like free better though :love_heart:. Anyway the softwares free you can get it from here user_manual:getting_started [DAVID-Wiki] (http://www.david-laserscanner.com/wiki/user_manual/getting_started)

And here’s a few images they did


They look fully rendered and this is a video to show how simple it is


I might have a bash at making a rotating bed and up and down scanner, could be great for making 3d object code.

As soon as I seen the title, I figured what this would be about!
It certainly looks like you can achieve good results with it.

I've got a couple things I'd like to model, but they're firmly on the roundtuit list.

It is in limited trial ware. 329 for full fat:

Laser scanning isn`t quite as simple as aome of the demos might suggest.

Kinect scanning looks like it might have some mileage, free for non commercial use
