3D Scanning with Kinect

Manager: George Fetters
Team: Derek, Andrew, Travis, Chris, Amberly, Deech, Gene, and many others...
Premise: Create a 3D scanning platform, install opensource 3D software for Kinect and take it to the Archon Convention to get some awesome scans.

We made use of the openNi platform for Kinect and a piece of free software called ReconstructMe for the software stack.  An Xbox 360 was used as a scanner and attached to a tripod.  A rotating scanning table was created.  This table is based on a lazy susan concept with a ball bering that can handle 1000 lbs.  A wooden platform was attached to the lazy susan and a repurposed motor from a powerweels toy was used to turn the person on the table.  A custom wheel had to be fabricated to provide traction and a spring plate was used to hold the motor against the platform.

This is the scanner at the Archon booth
