BC-based 3D3 Solutions’ KScan3D Kinect Scanner turns people, objects into 3D models.

12-aug-KScan3D-Kinect-360Burnaby, BC — 3D scanning and visualization technologies company 3D3 Solutions released its KScan3D Kinect-based 3D scanning software at Siggraph 2012. With the software, up to four Kinect scanners, and a PC or Mac running Windows OS, users can capture full 360 3D scans. Advanced algorithms then process the captured information and export data in a variety of file formats, including .ply, .obj, .stl, .asc and its own .3d3 format.

Once object data is captured, the software allows users to smooth, erode and decimate meshes. Unneeded data points can be selected and deleted. Meshes can also be scanned in batches and or separate scans combined to form a finalized mesh. The software also captures RGB textures that are also exported with UV coordinates, depending on export file format.

“KScan3D benefits from years of research and development on our professional line of 3D scanning products including the HDI 3D Scanner and FlexScan3D Software,” said Nick Koziupa, Product Manager. “The software combines our state-of-the-art technology with Microsoft’s phenomenally successful Kinect hardware to provide beginners, students, educators, and hobbyists with a fully featured, easy to use 3D scanning solution.”
