Westport Makerfaire Scan-A-Rama

Fredini04

Continuing our exploration of 3D scanning with the Microsoft Kinect today, here are photos from 3D artist Fred Kahl from Westport Maker Faire. He has been doing a great job optimizing how he scans and prints massive numbers of people in one sequence, and even built his own custom lazy-susan “people mover” platform (shared on Thingiverse) to allow him to easily grab full body scans, and all using affordable tools and software! Check out these scans from the event from The Great Fredini’s Cabinet of Curiosities:

The debut of Coney Island Scan-A-Rama at Westport Makerfaire on Saturday was a huge success! We had a continuous line of people waiting to be scanned all day, and managed to scan well over 100 people! I was a little nervous about how things would go, but things were very smooth and the scans all seem quite good. I’m getting file cleanup down to a science and am getting faster at processing them for printing. So far I’ve processes about a third of the files and will aim to get them all done and posted by next weekend. In the meantime I have a couple screenshots of some of the scans. Some of the family shots were quite touching. I even ran off one as a test print today and did an acetone polish on it. Looks great! I’m really excited about it.
