Home made 3D Scanner


Was inspired to tackle this project after going through some album art that inspired me and i came across Coldplay’s single art for “Rush of Blood”. The process was quite simple i looked up instructions to construct your own 3D scanner and using Processing.js i was able to convert 3 images into a detailed 3D map of my friends face. The Processing.js program allows you to export both a PNG (2D) and a PLY (3d) which you can open in Mesh Labs (http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/) and was able to take more detailed screen shots. I still have quite a bit of work to do, right now this is purely experimental (along with most of this blog) but hope for practical use or at least I hope i can use this technique for a few Projects. Enjoy your day for those of you who decided to read this!
