Trimensional : a 3D Scanner for iPhone
Posted By sculpteo on Apr 14, 2011 | 0 comments
Grant Schindler, research scientist in Georgia Tech’s College of Computing, created Trimensional, the first app that allows users with an iPhone 4, iPad 2 or recent iPod Touch to take 3-D scans of faces or other objects and share them by e-mail. In the latest update, users can also e-mail animated videos of their 3-D models.
For a few dollars more (In-App Purchase), artists and designers can even export their creation to CAD programs or 3-D applications as an OBJ, STL, or PLY file via email, with optional mesh smoothing.
Turn out the lights, turn up your screen brightness, and get ready for your close-up as you capture 3D scans using your iPhone 4 or 4th Generation iPod Touch.
For best results, an extremely dark room is required and iPhone screen brightness must be set to maximum.
