I scanned my brother using by kinect sensor and ReconstructMe.

And I tried 0.04mm layer printing on Rep2 with reduced scale.

It was not bad.

These scans are not near the quality of my Nextengine 3d scanner, but you get these scans from a video game component?! Not bad, there's a HUGE difference in price. It's probably just the scan, but your rep 2 is able to print better looking quality than this at .04mm. I print my 3d scans at .15mm and you can't even see the layers for the most part. Keep up the good work with the scans, I know my scanner had a learning curve.

If you like DIY projects, look into the David Laser scanner, it's exactly the same as the scanner makerbot is going to release. It's much better than a kinect, and can produce excellent quality scans on par or better than my nextengine, The Nextengine cost $3,000. You can make the david laser scanner with comparable scan quality for around $500.

Thanks good info about 3D scanner. BTW you looks like to have mis-understanding for model size. So I attached two more photos for reference. It is very tiny model. In case of UP Plus at 0.15mm layer, the printing quality is very low on this model size.

How would i go about using this 3d scanner? Is it simple to use?

Hi, It is not a 3D Scanner. The Kinect sensor is a motion capture sensor for xbox360 as I know. But the software ReconstructMe make the kinect sensor to have 3D Scanning ability. Please refer to http://reconstructme.net/http://reconstructme.net/ or http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30347http://www.thingiverse.com/thi.... You can easily understand how to use them.
