Photon 3D Scanner

Postby Yammerton » 2013-Apr-Fri-16-Apr

If you have a 3D printer and are tired of just downloading somebody else's models, start scanning and creating your own models.

Print them on your own machine, or send them to a shop like Ponoko and have access to their growing material library (plastics, ceramics and metals…oh my). Maybe you don't have a printer and just want to keep a digital archive of some precious keepsakes, maybe you develop video games and want a quicker way to get your models into your 3D software package.

Whatever it is that you do, I'm sure that once you get a scanner in your hands you'll come up with some unique ways of using it. Check out the Photon on Indiegogo and follow their story.

I just noticed that Photon by Matterform has started an online gallery of their test scans and prints that people have submitted.

I'm going to wait for Moedls to be re-launched on Kickstarter. you gotta love a project creator that actually will cancel their campaign because they can't guarantee an early shipping date. i think the photon will be to restrictive in terms of physical model size but perhaps be able to scan the complete object better. with Moedls the lasers are independent of the platform and can be adjusted for optimal scanning of the object. the platform will not have any physical size limitation except weight. he plans to make the rotating base out of cast aluminum and there may be upgrades to arduino synced motor control of the base. further you use your own camera, be it a web cam, mobile phone cam, DSLR, actual video camera etc. so the cost of the camera is not part of it (we all probably have decent camera). also there are 1 or 2 lasers and 3 different levels of quality. so you have control over what you spend vs the quality of the optics. spend more and get better optics. or buy the cheaper one and upgrade later. much more flexible. also we've seen the Moedls software on the iphone and it looks/works pretty good. he is planning windoze and mac desktop versions. so all in all i think Moedls will be more flexible and likely better quality scans too. lets hope it get re-launched!

I've actually backed another of his projects before. The levitation desk magnet thing. Came on time and as described, even though there isn't much to do it, he got it done.

I backed the Matterform scanner - not sure when it's supposed to arrive, but it is being shown off at CES
