Crowd-Funding May Help Transform iPad Into 3D Scanner
2013-09-18 07:48:36

[ Watch the Video: Turn Your iPad Into A 3D Scanner ] Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Software developers Occipital have launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring 3D scanning to the iPad. The small, strap-on sensor plugs directly into the Apple tablet and begins taking 3D images of a three-dimensional space. Using this sensor, users can complete 3D models of a room or a specific object in that room. This model can then be saved and exported in a number of ways....

Lost Tudor Sculptures Reassembled Using 3D Scanning
2013-09-06 12:55:37

AlphaGalileo Foundation University of Leicester experts have tried to recreate two Tudor monuments using a mixture of humanities research and scientific technology. The experts have studied two tomb monuments which originally were intended to stand in Thetford Priory, Norfolk, in an exhibition at the Ancient House Museum, Thetford, Norfolk, from 7 September 2013 to 29 March 2014. The elaborate tombs were planned by Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk – one for himself, and another...

Treasure Trove Of 3D Printers, Scanners Coming To Market
2013-08-23 06:47:57

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While 3D printing has been slowly gaining traction, the other half of the equation has been in developing at 3D scanner. 3D printers can “print” from 3D models, but only a few devices have been developed to actually capture physical objects and recreate them for the digital space. This week Brooklyn-based 3D printer company MakerBot announced the Digitizer, a $1,400 device that utilizes sophisticated software to scan and then...

The History of 3D Printing
2013-09-20 10:14:26

Three-dimensional printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of using additives to form solid 3D objects of virtually any shape from a digital model. This is achieved using specially formulated additives, such as plastics, that are formed into successive layers of material typically laid down on a platform in different shapes. 3D printing is uniquely distinct from a more traditional 3D sculpting technique, which relies on the removal of layers (subtractive manufacturing)...
