3D scan

In addition to classic modelling, various scanning methods are available to transfer real world objects into the 3D workspace. 3D scans are ideally suited for the transfer of natural and organic shapes. Along a virtual grid on a surface points get measured by laser. The result is a huge amount of measuring points (point cloud), which then allows the generation of a polygonal 3D model. A simple alternative to laser measurement is the photogrammetry. The objects are photographed from different angles using a specific lighting setup. Subsequently, the 3D model is calculated based on matching pixels across the different pictures. The recorded photo data additionally can be used to materialize the 3D models.
