Join Ian Roy in the Loft, and learn how to 3D scan!

This in person 1 hour intro workshop on 3D scanning will:

  • Overview a variety of 3D scanning methodologies – From LIDAR, to Structured Light, to Photogrammetry
  • Focus on how different 3D Scanning technologies work
  • Overview the data lifecycle for 3D scanning: How to Acquire, Process, Present, and Archive 3D scan data – and what the data and controls look like at each step.
  • Explore some local Brandeis use cases and projects that take advantage of what is possible with 3D Scanning on campus today – From high end 3D scanners to DIY photogrammetry with just a smartphone.
  • As a group – operate a 3D scan demo on 2-3 different 3D Scanners: An Xbox Kinect running Skanect using LiDAR, An Artec Spider or Eva using Structured Light, an Eneiscan desktop 3D scanner using Structured Light, and Photogrammetry techniques with Metashape or Capturing Reality, and Brandeis’ own proprietary 3D Scanner for Archeology the SCAPP bot:
