FabScan

Designer

- Aachen University


The FabScan is a hardware and software system for digitizing the shape and color of physical objects - a 3D scanner.  The plans for the  scanner give you all the information and resources you need to make your own table-top scanner.  FabScan uses an ordinary webcam, an affordable line laser, two stepper motors and an Arduino Uno.  The software is capable of mapping a colored point-cloud from the object, transforming the point-cloud into a surface-mesh and converting the surface-mesh into STL.
