Scan real-world objects and create 3D models. UA affiliates can check out a 3D scanner from the Main and Science-Engineering Libraries for up to 72 hours.
A 3D scanner takes a full set of snapshots of an object and stitches them together to create a 3D model. The model can then be used for 3D printing, diagramming, or analysis.
We endeavor to provide the latest technology and tools to enhance research and experiential learning. 3D scanning is used to scan real-world objects so they can be incorporated into the product design process, reverse engineering, preservation of cultural heritage, personalized medical treatment and as a start of 3D printing.
We have two Occipital Structure Sensor scanners connected to 4th generation iPads and a Macbook Pro laptop running Skanect Pro.
