The goal of the project "3D Scanner" is the creation of a low-priced DIY (do it yourself) 3D scanner for 360 degree scans.

All parts of the 3D scanner (software, electronics, hardware) shall be put under an open source license.

Mounting the 3D scanner should be possible without deeper technical knowledge.

3D scanner handling should be easy and should lead to quick scan results:

  1. Insert scan object
  2. Press button
  3. Save file with 3D scan data

Examples for potential areas of application for the 3D scanner:

Basic Idea

The basic idea for the 3D laserscanner technology is taken from a term paper of a computer science student.

The term paper describes a 3D laserscanner with a rotating plate. The main advantages of the solution described in the paper are:

Especially the 360 degree scanning capability is the main difference when comparing with other DIY 3D scanner solutions.
