OS3D Scanner

Winefred Washington is electrical engineer who does woodworking, metalworking, and programming in his spare time. His ideal project uses all of his skills and presents opportunities to learn new ones. In addition to his garage workshop, he is a member of Techshop. His favorite tools are the Shopbot and laser cutter.

Constructing an open source prosumer quality 3D scanner is his latest project. Objects are placed on a turntable where they are photographed by a line laser and USB camera. The images taken by the camera are analyzed and converted into a 3D object file by an on-board Raspberry Pi computer.
