Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

A general overview of all the 3D scanning and reproduction of objects virtually.

123D Catch

scanning wheel


The first attempt used a logitech C910 camera attached to this wheel, running around the object in question. To begin with, individual snapshots were taken by hand and look like this:

You can see the various things we tried. Sadly, only the hat came out anywhere decent:

So, I figured lets try with video and actually spin the thing and extract the frames from that:

Sadly, the result from this footage came out like this:

I.e, not very good at all.

So I figured, lets try the standard way with a DSLR and take some snaps. Here is one example:

Sadly, I only managed half the pig. I think more photos are needed. This was taken with a 50mm lens

I tried a wide angle lens to take a snap of this:

But this completely failed.

So far, 123D catch has not worked so well! :S

Laser Scanner

New version to be built

Kinect and Asus

Have built the PCL library and the Kinect Fusion. The former looks promising, the latter is being a pain as I dont have a good enough graphics card sadly.
