I am going to look at several different scanning software options:
Skanect uses a kinect sensor to make 3D scans.
Setup: Choose the option of the sizing box.
Scan: Walk/Move the scanner slowly around the object.
Process: The scanner will pick up many objects you do not want.
Remove all objects not within a minimum size. Crop the image. I also like to fill in the holes.
Share: Choose STL file.
123D Catch takes images from a camera and reconstructs it into a 3D image. My first attempt
was unsuccessful, probably because I did not take enough pictures or the light was not good enough.
It was very easy to do. I downloaded the app on my phone. I took pictures on all sides of the
object. I hit process on the software. Using the phone was more convenient than using the kinect but
not as good quality wise.
