DIMBODY: finally an OpenSource 3d desktop scanner funding on Indiegogo

By on September 5, 2013

Despite the Indiegogo Campaign has a challenging target, the Dimbody project seems really great and god only knows how much do we need an open source 3D scanner for the masses.

Dimbody 3d scanner

DIMBODY is a 3d scanner, a digitalizer tha allows you to take a physical object, and turn it into a digital 3D model on your computer.

DIMBODY is based on triangulation between laser plane  and a CMOS monochromatic sensor, it acquires point coordinates of an object (point cloud). The point cloud is then transformed in a 3d surface by the software and saved as a STL file. Then you can print it in your 3d printer, or scale, transform, modify it in a CAD software.

Thanks to rotating turret DIMBODY accuracy is outstanding and  thanks to rotating platform scannig phase is totally automated.

If you are a maker, you really need to have a DIMBODY to unleash your fantasy and avoid to loose time in 3d cad drawing
