3D Scan and Print with Photon 3D Scanner, Kinect & 123D Catch

For our May event, we are focusing our energy on the low-cost 3D scanning options that compliment the printer trends.

Just like with 3D Printing, the price range of 3D scanning technology has until recently been prohibitively expensive for the average consumer or small office. Things have started to change in the last year as low cost options in using free software ReconstructMe (along with a Microsoft Kinect), Autodesk's 123D Catch, and the exciting new Photon 3D Scanner (currently ending its breakthrough campaign on Indiegogo).

What some of you may not know is that the Photon 3D Scanner is a product of Toronto's own Matterform, and they'll be in attendance to give a little run down of what they've been up to and how they've managed to raise what is now approaching half a million dollars for their campaign (

    We've done a lot of work with 123D, as well as Autodesk's new Recap Photo professional solution (we were in the Beta program, though I believe Recap is now available to the public). You can see some results from our work here:

    I'm on the waitlist, and am already double booked for tomorrow night. But if there's anyone at the Meetup who'd like to talk about bringing your scans to the web, and/or turning them into interactive websites/games/experiences, reach out anytime [masked]

    We've got an optimization pipeline that makes even sloppy 3D scans look pretty good and run blazing fast in your browser. We're working on direct integration with a couple of 3D scanning companies. The combination of easy scanning, online viewing (with our tools), and 3D printing, is awesome :)

    I just got into the 123D programs from Autodesk. I'd really love to see what they can do :)

      123D is awesome, but they've also got a pro version launching soon -­

    Looking forward to this. Just FYI, here's something else you can do with your scans - we've just opened up an API to let you send your 3D scans to the web. We'll optimize them, and package them up nicely for you to embed on your website, or turn into an interactive app/game :) Happy to talk to anyone about opportunities here, this is a new feature for the team.
