123D Catch from Autodesk (click here.)
iSense from 3DSYSTEMS (click here.)
Second task: scan something
I´ve choosen my letherman as scan-object. As i know now, this object is to small and the details
are to fine for the two scan-softwares i´ve tested:
123D Catch is an app for android and ios. You take a lot of pictures with your mobile,
the app pushes them to a server from autodesk. On the server runs some kind of photogrametry-software
that builds a model out of the pictures. This takes about one hour...
The object files can then send by Email to your Email-Account, in theory.
In the real-life i tried it 3 times, but no exactable scan was made.
The first scan was just a point-cloud without any structure.
Ok, second try... After 3 hours of calculating the apps said, that the taken images are to bad...
last try: well... it says "Finalizing" since 56 hours...
The iSense is a device that connects to your ipad/iphone. Inside the device is a depth-cam and
an IR-sending-unit. The App takes autmatic a lot of pictures while you go around the scan-object.
While the software is scanning you can see a realtime-model of your object-file. This way you can see
were you have to scan more or less, and if you are to near or to far to/from the obejct.
After the scan the software renders the object-file direct on the device and you can transfer it
by email to your account.
If you want to print the Object-File you have to convert it by Meshlab
