To take all the photos required for this process, “thomas_openscan
” has come up with an automated device that rotates the object, allowing him to capture images using a DSLR or smartphone camera. In the photo above we can see an early prototype of this amchine and in the video we can see other attempts. So, this machine will spin the object to scan in all directions and after each movement, we could take a photo, always from the same spot and angle.
Once we have all the photos we could use a software that will go from 2D photos to a 3D object and also keeping good resolution. We have to make sure we haev good light and the less noise in the background, the better.
