Re. 3d scan with xbox 360 kinect and scanect on mac

(Mav2k) #1

Hi, I am trying to create a quality 3d scan of a head using my xbox 360 kinect and scanect software for mac.

If you look at my tests none are of a high quality that could be used to create a mask, which is what I want to do.

Can anyone offer any help and advice of what I am doing wrong or what else would be more suitable for this purpose?

Many thanks for any help you can offer.



I don't think you're doing anything wrong. The quality of scanect models, at least the ones I've seen, is not really good enough for a high quality mask.

You might try the Structure + iPad + itSeez3d (see ), but that would require new hardware.

Another option is photogrammetry. Lots of free solutions like ReCap360, and all you need is a camera.

I think Trnio is also planning a "3d selfie" feature, but it's only on iOS.
