    Default awesome and free 3d scanner software. (it uses an xbox Kinect)

    so Im making a light duty CNC and wanted to add a 3d scanner so I could reproduce items, out of a stroke of luck I found this guy who is making software that uses a xbox Kinect to make a real time 3d model of anything, not only is it super fast but what amazed me was that it refines the model the more it sees the object. you really have to see it to believe it. you dont even have to place it on a turn table or in a special set up corner like dave3d, in another of his videos he walks around with the Kinect and it maps his whole desk in ever increasing detail.

    ReconstructMe

    the guy just sent me an a message and now they are taking beta testers... you can go to his site above or his blog to find out more but I think his demo videos kinda speak for themselves on how awesome this is.

    Default OpenKinect

    There is a group that has been using the Kinect as a scanner with free open PC software for some time. Check out openkinect.org

    Got it working at home. Once I updated my video drivers it worked.

    I will look on their forums and try to learn how to utilize it.

    The 3D printing video in the ReconstructMe website says that the model can be output as an STL file.
    Would be great to see a small model output from the software.

    Cheers
