Kostya Full Body Scan by fredini Oct 17, 2012


For your consideration today, I have a full body scan from my newly upgraded scanning turntable!

I've spent the last week fine tuning my thing: Heavy Duty Lazy Susan for Full Body Scanning (see http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:28454). In this update, I added a rotisserie motor to power it and am very pleased with the results! The slow, consistent rotation has yielded vastly better scans than before.

I got inspired to upgrade my turntable because last week I was asked to review Lenovo's new Yoga 13 computer. I thought it would be cool to try using it as a portable scanning station, but wasn't able to get ReconstructMe running under the prerelease Windows 8. I ended up trying to scan the machine instead. (See my review here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwVTEg5Nq4Q)

Anyways, I created this scan using my newly upgraded turntable- The technique is to start at the bottom and slowly move the kinect up the body. This assures clean geometry from the bottom up.. From there its just a few minutes of cleanup in Netfabb and you're ready to print.

Look for more full body scans soon!

I found the chin prints a little funky- my first print looked like a zombie chewed the face off. Second time, I printed with no support, but used a pencil as support for a couple layers just as the chin started. I'm pleased with the result. Next time I will have them keep their chin up a little more during the scan.

Is this a Kinect scanner?

Yes, scanned with a Kinect and ReconstructMe software

What is the reason we don't put the scanner on an arm and rotate it around the body?

The wires from the kinect connect to both a power outlet and the scannin computer, so its vastly easier to rotate the subject than the kinect around the subject. 

That could be overcome... overcame... overcommen.... We could fix that.

amazing! nicely done
