The idea behind this project is to provide an open-source stand-alone
Kinect and Raspberry Pi2 based 3D Scanner.
Many people ask for a software during the last year. Until last year this was only a proof of concept project for me. But the good news is that i will make it happen. I am working simultaneously on the FabScanPi project . Most of the FabScanPi software can be reused for this project. Thats the reason why i prepared the FabScanPi software to add a module for Kinect support in the last month.
So if you want to stay up to date, follow also the FabScanPi project.
I was able to compile some software for the scanner. And hopefully this software will work. I had not the time to test it until now but come and visit our booth at Berlins first Maker Faire on 3th and 4th of October. You can find this project at the booth of "Freie Maker".
I will bring this project to the ccc camp from 13 - 17 August for working on the software.
I had to finish the Software of my other project FabScan Pi. But today i will start to write the Software for the Kinect Scanner.
The project is in an early state now. But you can find compiling instructions for the libfreenect kinect library and raspberry pi at http://www.mariolukas.de/2015/04/proof-of-concept-3d-scanner-with-kinect-and-raspberry-pi2
A first test of using a Kinect with Raspberry Pi2 is done. Libfreenect compiles without any problems on a Raspberry Pi2.
