Photogrammetry & 3D Scanning for Beginners – 6 ‘Must-Haves’ Recommended by @Sketchfab
Nick Lievendag has a write-up over on the Sketchfab blog of 6 ‘must-haves’ for anyone interested in getting started with 3D scanning (these ‘haves’ may also interest anyone simply interested to expand their toolkit). They include: lighting, turntables (aka Lazy Susan), markers (as in indicators, not felt-tip pens), matting spray, software, and last but not least a Sketchfab account 🙂 It’s a good quick read and will hopefully be of aid to makers tinkers with 3D scanning.
In this tutorial, Nick Lievendag contributes to our series of photogrammetry tutorials. Today he breaks down the tools that are helpful for creating high-quality photogrammetry and 3D scans.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
