What is Possible with a 3D Scanner

I'll attempt to aggregate interesting 3D Scanning projects.  Hopefully this will give you an idea of what is possible with a 3d scanner.

There are two projects in particular that are very interesting to me because I'm working on them.  

  • The WeightReaderTM is a product that captures a 3D scan of a live animal to immediately estimate that animals weight.  The weight is used to increase farm profitability while also improving animal well-being.
  • ShapeStart is developing an in-ear 3D scanner to directly capture the shape and size of the ear canal. This will replace the silicone impression process currently necessary to make custom ear plugs, head phones, and hearing aids. 

3D Scanning Applications


Just show me some cool stuff you can 3D scan.
