My first self-scan using a Kinect and the beta version of ReconstructMe.

Read more and watch a video of the capture & print in action on the Ponoko blog: http://blog.ponoko.com/2012/02/23/real-time-kinect-3d-scanning-with-reconstructme


  1. When scanning, place the Kinect in a high spot so that it can "see" the top of your head

  2. Load the model in netfabb Studio (the basic version is free)

  3. Run the "fix part" script on your model

  4. Use the slicing tools to crop a clean segment for printing

  5. Export, and print!

Nice. By the way, if you re-save it as a binary stl in meshlab, the file size will be much smaller.

Also, placing the kinect high enough to capture the top of your head is only good if you have an epic beard that hides the otherwise occluded area under you chin. :)
