This is is what I scan with at work: https://www.creaform3d.com/en/portable-3d-scanner-handyscan-3d/technical-specifications
We have a Black Elite. It was about $100k when we bought it. I am sure that there are things out there now that would yield good results, for a less heart-stopping price.
NICE WORK! What are you printing in, ABS? Are you going to run it in plastic or are you looking to cast it?
OooOOoooh! You have the GOOD TOYS! I think I am going to end up starting with a free phone app for scanning. It seems like the entry price points for 3D scanning are either Free Phone App, $2500 up noname offshore scanning rig off Amazon, or, like, tens of thousands of dollars for the real deal like the one you use.
I think I will make some small toy - cars for my son. He likes them a lot, for every hb I gift him smth like this. But a not long time ago I had not such a good period in my life. In one moment the price of 3D printer ink went up a lot. In addition, a cartridge in my usual printer had broken. I decided that a simple printer was more important and I started to search for online shops where I could order a new cartridge for my printer. I found these guys who provide high-quality cartridge from Brother for a reasonable price. I ordered a new cartridge and received it in a few days. These guys have sales on their site and free delivery! So if u want, u can look over this site for more info!
I just tried out a free program called "Meshroom"; it converts multiple photos of an object into a 3D mesh. I photographed an object on a table from all angles, processed the photos into a 3D mesh in Meshroom, and then I used Blender (free 3D software) to deal with the generated 3D mesh. There's a learning curve but it worked pretty well.
The program works best with objects that have lots of reference points; glossy surfaces and reflections will cause problems so a coat of matte primer/a grid of pen lines atop the object will help if it's smooth like a car part.
If the phone app doesn't do what you wanted, give Meshroom and Blender a whirl!
The print you see in the photo is in PETG. I will be printing the set for use in Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate to test in use on the engine. When I’m completely happy with everything I will cast it in Aluminum.
I've used mine to create test profiles for bead roller dies. Had a lot of fun (trial and error) making them.
