For our May Meetup.com 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 ( http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/photon-3d-scanner/ )
