I just tried this, thanks to a Maddox blog.
123Dcatch, It is FREE!
http://www.123dapp.com/catch
I have a Sculpture I made of Abe Lincoln in Sculpey and then painted.
I put him on a bar stool under a sky light.
I took about 45 images Starting in front, looking up at his chin, then spiraled around 2 times, ending up looking down on his head.

You upload the pics and the "cloud" does all the work. Creates the entire room.
Then I isolated the head and sent out to the cloud for a med then Hi res version.
I Exported the .obj and imported into Maya.
They even provide a UV map! Pretty cool

Will definitely print it even if texture is doing alot for model.
Real sculpture:

deep links dont always work, you might stick it into a drop box public area and link it there.
its difficult to know, as the image is cached locally and doesn't indicate a broken link.

all we see is blue question marks.

Have you tried using just a few images?
Can it do anything with just a stereo pair? Obviously you won't get a full 3d object but do you get a surface at all?

Stereo pair is just not how 123D Catch works.
It needs the background landmarks to plot position of objects. (so no lazy susan)
First time I took 30 pic and spiraled only once, did not turn out nearly as good.
Patches missing on top of head n under chin.
So 2nd time battery running out or would taken more.
Also put objects in background for software to work with.
Some people take movies and load the individual images. The more images the better.
Going to do a stuffed animal I made next.

I guess a way to increase the general accuracy of the 123D method is to then do a rudimentary scan with something like a dave's, and use that to match up with the 123D to make the scale fit.

I have awful luck with dave's. I get hundreds of thousands of points and a general shape, but nothing I have been able to use, and certainly not a complete 360 scan. but what it did scan, it got very right.

adobe 123d catch

its the second one.

here is a video that is an ideal scan; its still kinda blobby, think of the shape colorless, but its very good.

So, is it possible to make a model of something from a video on youtube?

If I understand correctly, you can not because it usually does not go around the back of the object, so you would only get the front.

you missed the point, but if the pictures in the video were the ones used, yes.. if they are clean enough.

the pictures used were at least 1920 wide.. the frame size on youtube, probably not.

Anyone have any ideas on probe scanning?

basically, a sensor, or a rod with a switch on the top hangs from the head. you could let a probe scanner get a cloud precisely off of the print platform.

http://www.cadcamcadcam.com/contactprobe.aspx

http://www.imsrv.com/deskcnc/probe.htm

ImageImage

the stats on this particular sensor that is $250

The TP-100 contact probe is a 3/8 shank ( or 10mm optional ), 5 way mechanical contact scanning device with a 2mm ( .0787 in) diameter ruby tip. It is used with CNC milling and CNC routing style machines to digitize surface and contour data. When used as a probe the shank is mounted in a spindle collet or chuck or other holder parallel to the spindle axis. The probe also includes a flat base and tip which can be used to convert the probe into a table based tool measurement instrument. Tip stylus extensions are available in 20, 30, 60 , and 90 mm lengths. 1mm, 3mm, and 4mm diameter, ruby tips styli are also available.

When used with Mach3, a free plugin is available to collect a raw point cloud data set from a 3D surface. There are also g-code based routines to collect 2D contour data. Mach3 can also use the tool setter base and flat stylus for tool setting.

When used with DeskCNC, a probed surface is filtered, smoothed, reverse compensated for the probe tip radius, and saved as an .STL CAD file. The 3D surface machining CAM in DeskCNC can make minor edits to the surface and will produce 3D surfacing toolpaths to duplicate the scanned part. DeskCNC has automated routines to measure and record tool lengths when the probe is used as a tool setter. The photo below is a workpiece created from the scan of the leopard above.

This probe will work with CNC controllers that interface to a probing input from a switched contact. This includes DeskCNC, Mach3, TurboCNC, EMC and many other programs/controllers.

and the milk scanner. / fluid scanner

http://www.instructables.com/id/Milkscanner-V1.0/
http://milkscanner.moviesandbox.net/

Image

This project started out as the Milkscanner (as described on instructables). The basic idea behind this process is that you can capture the silhouette of an object easily when it is surrounded by a high contrast fluid, such as milk or ink.
When lowering the object into the fluid, the silhouette changes gradually, as the fluid obstructs more and more of the objects shape. By capturing the silhouette of an object at different stages of submersion, one can generate slices, that, if properly stacked together, can be interpreted as 3D data.

Yes, multiple people are doing things with the Kinect to produce point cloud data.

Here is a link from the MakerBot blog, third item is a Kinect to STL program available on GitHub:
http://www.makerbot.com/blog/2012/01/09 ... to-create/

Here's an Ultimaker guide to setting up an OSX box to use the method mentioned above:
http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Kinect_2_STL

Here's a video and link to a different kinect 3d scanner on GitHub:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ke9r70QpqQg

Here is another video tutorial on going from Kinect to Blender:

I managed to find a KInect cheap at the ebay classifieds, but that [insert synonym for a dislikable person] first agreed but then sold it to someone else (probably reaized he could sell it for more...).
Oh well. Can't wait to get one, but right now I don't need another expensive toy :-)
I'll probably use a VGA pocket projector and a webcam - anyone has any info on results (and software used) with that? The big plus is that I have those available and would not need to buy more stuff.

Sure.

There's FlexScan3d:
http://blog.makezine.com/2009/02/17/3d- ... -and-proj/

But it is not free, nor even an end-user solution (i.e. 'request a quote,' not, 'here's the price').

MakerBot has a 3d scanning DIY pattern up (this is not a kit you purchase, just instructions on what to download and put together) that uses a projector and webcam:
http://wiki.makerbot.com/3d-scanner

Hackaday has another here:
http://hackaday.com/2011/10/08/structur ... d-scanner/

Both appear to use the same libraries, a ThreePhase decoder application, the PeasyCam library, and the ControlP5 library.

There is a similar set of solutions for working with a webcam and a laser-line projector, and on one of the pages about it, someone claims that the software used for it, David 3D, can also be used with a projector (and likewise claims that the results with a projector are both better (which surprised me) and easier (which did not) with the projector than with the laser.

The David 3d software is here, and the page does confirm that it also now offers a structured light (i.e. projector based) solution:
http://www.david-laserscanner.com/

This one is a pay solution, €329 (EUR), but can save straight to an STL (the free solution above, going by the Makerbot page, gives you a point cloud, then you need to use Blender or MeshLab or the like to create a surface model and produce an STL).

I hope that helps, Marcus!

Thanks! I've seen the hackaday & makerbot projects, but I was unaware David was able to work with projectors as well...
I guess I'dd go with the free route.
The only software I thought of buying once was vi3dim.com, but the lack of updates and the strict hardware requirements to get it work (tried two computers, one should have worked but it kept crashing) put me off.
I know there are other picture/video to 3d model solutions, but at leas the ones I know are either very expensive or cloud based... Perhaps it's just me, but I'dd like a solution that does not depend on some internet service so it is asured that it will work even if the company discontinues the product.

I just purchased a new one, which I will have in a week.

my laser scanner tinkerings have been more frustration than success... i get 200k points that arn't where they should be. :P

I see much progress with the kinetics.
I have tinkered with dave, it is the reason i got a kinetics.

I am not concerned so much about its absolute precision, as i will be scanning things that dont need that precision: rooms, and objects I am designing shelling for.

I have a low quality, low resolution projector ive tinkered with Dave with, and in spite of its inadequacies, it has been better in some things than the laser on the ticking apple kitchen timer has been.

An uncalibrated depth scan RGB can be an interesting piece of art, save your better ones.

http://www.vi3dim.com/

The method proposed by Vi3Dim requires a simple camera. Rotating the object in front of the camera lens, or moving the camera around the object enables the software to reconstruct the object’s surface mesh, within attached texture from the sequence of the collected frames.

not bad for $20.

Yeah that was the one I mentoned. BUt the software works on few systems (at least none of mine, as the only one having a gpu & enough graphic memory does not work with it properly).
If the person would develop it further (pro version anounced for a year? Longer?) perhaps it would rock.

Just an FYI, Sean Bires posted publicly on G+ complaining about the
'bullsh---y' results from scanning with the Kinect, and that he was going to try the David method of laser scanning in hopes of better results.
https://plus.google.com/115837430604346 ... 2xaSFMaKZk

A bit later he posted: "Ugh, optical laser scanning kinda sucks too... it's like your object has to be caked in diffuse white in order to scan. Blacks, specularity, and subsurface scattering ruins it, so practically any anime figure is unscannable, unless you're willing to irreversibly destroy it with white primer."

Don't know if he's tried the SLS approach yet.

you can usually pack the object in some form of hardening something or other, be it sand, polyform, play dough.. fill the gaps, pull it apart.. then either cast the mold, or scan the mold.. either way.

progress..but nothing successful yet.

the reflective black surface of my camera has thrown off every attempt at scanning I've done so far.

this is a infrared frame from the kinect,
I DID get a stream with 310 million vertices... but that is a bit much, so i need to try it again.

http://reconstructme.net/

"
ReconstructMe is a software tool for Windows that uses the Microsoft Kinect (or Asus Xtion PRO LIVE) to capture 3D models in real-time. The software given to testers originally just displayed device info, and reconstructed models from existing data, but now it has the all of the basic features from beginning to end.

Even though it doesn’t have a GUI yet, ReconstructMe is very easy to use, and produces an STL file that is almost immediately ready to print. When scanning myself, I only had to execute the basic repair script in netfabb Studio (to close holes in the mesh), and then crop out the portions that I didn’t want to print.

i got an app for my iPod called "trimensional" it still needs some work (a lot!) to get the output correct, but it's a start. basically you go to a dark place for best results, and it takes pictures with the built in camera facing you, at the same time it shines the view screen in different locations, and combines the different shots into a 3d image. the only major problem is that any shiny surfaces like your eyes reflect back more light so they appear to be closer to the camera... it ends up looking like you have daggers in your eyes!...

Doesn't look too bad. I'm going to give this a shot tonight. My friend is trying to model a helicopter blade (Blade 120 SR) and having issues getting the curve into solid works. This software or 123D by Adobe might help us out. I'm not sure how it will work for smaller things like the blade though.

This reconstructme is going to take a bit of practice to get anything usable out of it.. at least, with smaller items.

We tried some scanning with David Laser Tools and a Laser Line. Less than ideal output. I would say it was about 20% usable. Lots of cleanup would be needed. It looks like ReconstructMe isn't much better.

Pretty cool. Looks like it gets better results than we did with David Laser Scan, however, what is the next step to easily blend all sides into a 3D model and make it solid with printable faces. Is there some software that makes this cleanup process easier?

Neat. Any idea if there's still progress?

I still would like something as simple as vi3dim, is there anything like it as open source project?

//EDIT
Wow, vi3dim actually has updates, going to read throug it :)

It looks like the creator of Parsley is actually part of the ReconstructMe development team. I would guess that he has stopped working on the Parsley application, though I'm not sure.

I think the laser scanner and/or vi3dim will be better for scanning smaller objects, I hope development will speed up a little.

I totally forgot about Spinscan : shock:
Very nice.
I browsed the github and Thingiverse page, any info on hardware requirements (recommended hardware, camera, laser line etc.)?

Spinscan looks like it gives some really promising results. I just want to put a little less effort into scanning, It just doesn't seem like that will be possible.

With respect to obtaining a line-laser for something like the spin-scan, this page gives examples of simple mechanisms for converting a laser pointer into a line laser:

this article is actually more substantive than the website, so far.. but its got promise.

http://venturebeat.com/2012/03/27/matterport-3d-scanner/

and why is that a matterport, its clearly a kinect http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-fgKUuwUB4

this looks nice though

Ken, what kind of kinect are you using for the reconstructMe? The Kinect for windows has a 'near mode' that (I believe) the xbox version does not. Facial scans come out pretty nice with the Kinect for Windows. I haven't tried adding reading glasses to it yet, but it is still not bad at all.
Cheers,
Ted

Sample image obtained from a Kinect for windows, and reconstructMe. I just sat the subject in a swivel chair and rotated it back and forth a couple times.

nice.. try again with glases, and sit about a foot from it. your resolution will be much higher.

"Buy it now for only $395 and save $100
You will receive an email with license code usually within 24 to 48 hours.
Read this tutorial before using the software."

yikes. my kinect and glasses still cost less than that.

I received my Kinect a few days ago, and it's amazing.
After watching Tony Buser's Vimeo instructions on cleaning up a model, I got a even better STL to print now.
I am amazed with ReconstructMe, but at the same time a bit disappointed due to the software loosing track when using the free version. It's sometimes hard to use at all, especially freehand :-(

Still- not bad, especially since I did this freehand scanning myself & only on the regular, not the high resolution...

By the way:
Any experiences with http://www.agisoft.ru/products by the way? Did I understand right, it's a photo based method that is NOT cloud based (as the others are)? For 99 a licence that might be worth considering (have not tried it yet)...

Your details will hold up pretty well on most prints of at least 4 inches, the bigger the better with the default scan.

The truth is the slicing and extrusion just averages out most of what would be fine detail anyhow.

Decimate your objects, you can reduce it by half and it wont change the geometry at all, but make it a much friendlier file.

Indeed, printing is somewhat a smoothing-filter anyway ;-) Though poisson filter really improved the texture. Scanning on hi res results in new problems, the artificial track-loosing of the free version is annoying. Very annoying.

The tutorial also includes that and a file size reduction, though it wasn't too bad. Mesh mixer is a great tool to soften out some bumps and dents :-)

Google "3D scanning services in India" without the quotes.
