Hey guys!

My name is Andrew. Here is my first post here. First of all sorry my english.

I'm a developer of upcoming SL 3D-scanning system called Russian3DScanner. I have just finished the first demo-video. All scanning were done with Canon 500D and 1024x768 LCD projector. However one can use any Canon EOS camera and any projector. All were done without any cheats, bump-maps or handwork (except for rough manual alignment of scans and removing some bad parts of scans).

The first version of R3DS would be something around $200. It fairly simple to use but for now it only capable of saving PLY point-clouds. So one should align them and do a meshing in third-party applications like Geomagic, Rapidform or Meshlab.

This is the first time my work goes public so i'm very excited about your feedback!

Agreed, that's really impressive. I'm guessing those point clouds are pretty dense.

Hey Andrew,

First welcome here! This looks excellent, congratulations! You should get in touch with Lee ( Infinite ). He is making a great use of scanning related technologies. Anyway great to have you onboard!

Cheers,

KS

Welcome Neo, looking forward to seeing more of your posts here and I can't wait to get my hands on your software. It certainly looks very robust, the shoes and hand scans look really detailed!!

Also looking forward to see it develop further in the future.

Thanks guys! Thomas, Lee it's a honor to hear this from you I'll do my best to make it better. Looking forward to implement face scanning in next version!
I also would be glad to hear any advice about the functionality you wanna see in a scanning software.

Well I don't know what it's benefits or limitations are until I can test it but support for multiple Cameras and Projector resolutions would be cool. Automatic meshing and UV Map generation.

Does your software just read in the images? or can you control and Live View with it? Like Breeze?

I believe there is a MASSIVE gap in the market for Multi Camera DSLR software. Breeze is the only thing on the market for this. It can be very costly per camera, per year, for the licenses. They kind of have a Monopoly on it, even Autodesk wrote their own software to circumvent using it for Multi Camera Photofly rigs. Although the software is very good.

I guess your Software currently supports CPV?

I see! Sure, it controls Canon EOS cameras, it also supports LiveView in our latest update.
Great idea regarding Multi Camera support! We will work in this direction. Sorry my english, what is CPV?
What about Nikon cameras support? Does anyone need it?

That sounds good : ) CPV is Colour Per Vertex, as I guess if your method just exports point clouds, you might at least be able to support that, until you can integrate polygon meshing and UV support which is quite important.

Any and all Camera support is good : )
