3D Scanning soon to be affordable

Spiral Scratch out of Liverpool UK has designed an affordable three-dimensional computer scanner. The current 3D scanners on the market cost thousands of dollars, and are anything but small.

As the object rotates, the system builds a complete accurate picture of the object’s shape. The camera captures colours and applies those to your virtual object once it is fully generated. The system only uses one camera, therefore some details on the object may not be scanned properly, so it would have to be turned on its side to overcome this flaw.

Spiral Scratch plans to have a mainstream production model available in two years for around £100.
