Here’s a video of a DIY 3D scanner made from regular flatbed scanner. It can only scan cylindrical objects but sure hell beats any over-priced 3D scanners.
“I modified a Dell scanner in such a way that it can used to scan cylindrical objects such as a soda can or, in this case, an energy drink can.”
Here’s milkscanner, a 3D scanner that gets each slice of the 3D scan with a spoon drop of milk!
Friedrich Kirschner’s Milkscanner is a clever method for scanning 3D objects using only a webcam, some milk, and a camera rig made out of LEGO.
The basic idea is this: you place an object in a container, incrementally fill the container with milk, and take a photo after each tiny fill increment. The Milkscanner software mattes out the white part of the images, resulting
