If you are looking for a convenient way to scan real life 3D objects, create digital representations, which can be imported into 3D modeling software and 3D printed. You might be interested in a new precision laser color 3D scanner launched via Kickstarter this month, which is now available for return.
ASCAND’s developer team based in Hamburg, Germany has created an accurate yet powerful handheld 3D scanner that uses the power of your smartphone to scan objects. Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the smart project from around $102 or £87 (depending on current exchange rates).
“Say goodbye to the need to scrap and repurchase new 3D scanning hardware for 2, 3, 4, 5 or ‘next gen’ editions. Simply because you want to get your hands on the latest features in the exciting and dynamic world of 3D scanning.
Traditional 3D scanners are stuck with whatever was put in the box during production. It’s especially bad if you want to start with a budget by “getting your feet wet”, then move on to something less “DIY”, and finally look for a professional solution that offers all the bells and whistles you can expect from 1000 $++ the investment required by traditional providers.
If the ASCAND crowdfunding campaign is successful in meeting its required engagement goal and project completion progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to occur around December 2022. Learn more about the scanner project 3D ASCAND, check out the promotional video below.
“ASCAND’s capabilities grow with every phone upgrade, with every increase in cloud computing power, and with every upgrade we deploy. Starting with a FREE community service for beginners up to a professional plan for those who need it. Today, even a single average Cloud Rack is far more powerful than the single board computers built into most 3D scanners today. And it’s very likely that the phone’s built-in camera in your pocket will be significantly better than what’s in an expensive 3D scanner box.
“ASCAND uses “laser triangulation” technology combined with powerful artificial intelligence and computer vision algorithms running on a scalable network of servers in the Cloud. This grid is orders of magnitude more powerful than the single-board computers squashed into traditional scanners or the chips that power even the most advanced phones.
