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.

<p>very charming!</p>

<p>Is this a Kinect scanner?</p>

<p>Yes, scanned with a Kinect and ReconstructMe software</p>

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

<p>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. </p>
