I didn't want to put tapes all over my Kinect sensor, so I quickly drew up this lens holder to secure the reading glass lenses to try out the close distance scanning.

Spent quite some time changing the settings on ReconstructMe to get better results. What I noticed was that even though the lenses did help with the scan quality, but it's impossible to get a complete 360 degree scan of a person because the camera flickers too much and was too unstable to get a complete scan.

Putting this lens holder up here on Thingiverse in case someone might find it useful as well.


The part needs to be printed on the side so there's minimum of support required.

Turn the model 90 degree either long the X or Y axis so it stands up.

Awesome design! One question though, should it be printed in inches or centimeters?

Hi the file was set up in metrics system, millimetre. There shouldn't be any need to change or scale the file when you print. It was set up to fit Kinect as it is. Thanks.

Great item! What strength lenses are you using and what settings are you using in Reconstructme?

Hi, the lenses are from 2.5+ reading glasses. I played with the settings in ReMe by changing the numbers up and down to see which works, but I haven't yet got one that worked for me. I'll upload the text file for your reference if you're interested.

Awesome. I had read Tony Buser's posts about this but never had the time to play with it myself. What size object are you scanning with it?

I tried to scan myself, my cat, my laptop, cat scratching pole etc, but because the lenses made it so unstable that I couldn't move the sensor around the objects to get good scan. It was all from one angle with lots of holes.
