About Structured Light 3d Scanning

NEW! Interview with Kyle McDonald, creator of ThreePhase! (click here)

Kyle did an amazing job creating ThreePhase and thankfully shared his creation for everyone to use and take their own 3D scans.

In order to get a Good 3D scan, the projector and webcam must be alligned…

-Enough vertically apart so that the webcam can get a separate perspective from the projector, (thus allowing for a 3D image instead of 2D)
-Yet, close enough together so that the object is not vertically distorted.
- The two settings within the Cyclops allows the device to scan both small and large objects. Larger objects, which need to be further from the Cyclops to fit in view, need a larger vertical separation between the webcam and projector.
