People need 3D models of objects (and people) for lots of reasons: 3D printing, computer animation, doing CAD modeling around existing conditions, making clothing, etc. Here are some ways you can get 3D models of real-world geometry without being a CAD wizard with lots of free time:

  • Autodesk 123D Catch is a free app that uses photogrammetry to create a 3D model from 2D pictures. You can use the mobile version of 123D Catch and take pictures directly with your smartphone, or use the PC/Mac version to import pictures from a camera. Autodesk also sells professional software called ReCap that constructs even higher-fidelity models with laser scan data, DSLR photos, or GoPro video.
  • Occipital Skanect is a similar PC/Mac app that uses a Microsoft Kinect 3D camera to scan objects. It has both free and paid versions; the free version is limited to models of a certain complexity.
  • NextEngine makes a hardware 3D scanner. An Asylum member owns one; you can email the have-it-made mailing list to inquire about arranging for a scan.
  • The Circle Cam is an Asylum neighbor that makes a large-format multi-camera scanner capable of capturing entire crowd scenes.
  • Dot Product makes a hardware sensor for both iPads and Android tablets, designed for professional/industrial 3D scanning applications.
  • The Structure Sensor, another Occipital product, is a hardware sensor that plugs into an iPad or a computer to turn it into a 3D scanning device.
  • [1], a combined 3D scanner and camera
