Skanect is a new affordable, easy to use tool that allows users to capture a full color 3D model of an object, a person or a room.
Skanect transforms your Microsoft Kinect or Asus Xtion camera into an ultra-low cost scanner able to create 3D meshes out of real scenes in a few minutes. It leverages consumer-grade 3D cameras, thereby limiting the hardware cost to a fraction of the cost of previous scanning solutions.
It’s also as simple to use as a point-and-shoot camera –¬†¬†just move around your 3D camera to capture a full set of viewpoints, and you will get a mesh at interactive speeds.
For a personal and hobbyist use, you can even download a free version of Skanect! Check it out using the link below.
