A new product from an entrepreneurial technology company has the potential to open up 3D printing by providing consumers with easy access to high-level 3D scanning technology.
Now anyone with an iPad and the Structure Sensor can create 3D models using objects they see around them. This opens up a world of possibilities for engineers, designers, inventors, architects and manufactures.
The program overlays a photo map onto the spatial data, creating surprisingly lifelike models (and uncanny valley-style portraits). It guides you through the scanning process with helpful tips. And then it renders incredibly realistic models, not only of humans, but of objects, too.
Itseez3D app turns iPad into ultra-realistic ‘game changing’ 3D scanner. 3D scanning is about to get a whole lot more consumer friendly thanks to a new app from visual technology company Itseez.
