Build Your Own 3D Scanner: Optical Triangulation for Beginners

Table of Contents


Do-it-yourself projects using off-the-shelf electronics have become increasing popular in recent years. Magazines such as MAKE and websites such as Instructables have popularized the build-your-own movement. We were impressed by the hobbyist 3D scanning solutions we found while prepared the course material. To assist those new to this topic, we maintain a list of do-it-yourself 3D scanning projects here. We also point to some recent academic projects on 3D scanning to inspire attendees to move the “state-of-the-DIY” forward.
