Scanven

Spring 2016


Language: Kinect

Overview

Scanven is a 3D scanning project. Since it's scan me- Aven, I coined the word Scanven. The idea is to obtain a digital representation of myself and present it in multiple (interactive) ways.

Documentation

Different techniques are tested for this project: Windows builder with Kinect V2, skannect with Kinect V2 and Skannect with structure sensor. The latter case seems to be best for human body scanning.

Interface of structure sensor:

The next step is to present the digital file in different methods, first comes of course, digital fabrication:

And then add skeleton and funny animation:

Future Development

Write instructable tutorial.
Present 3D model with skeleton in browser; and print physical model with flexible joint.
