I&#39;ve done a little playing with the kinect for 3d scanning. Can get a 3d model of the front half of something pretty easily, for example here&#39;s me:<br><a href="http://davr.org/uploads/meshlab.png">http://davr.org/uploads/meshlab.png</a><br>

<br>Getting a full object scan requires either:<br>A) Manually taking a couple scans from different angles and merging them in meshlab, eg:<br><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Using-Meshlab-to-Clean-and-Assemble-Laser-Scan-Dat/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Using-Meshlab-to-Clean-and-Assemble-Laser-Scan-Dat/</a><br>

<br>B) Using RGBDemo room constructor mode with a special box around the object to fake it out into thinking the kinect is moving, eg:<br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7LthXRoESw">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7LthXRoESw</a><br>

<br>I&#39;ve collected useful kinect links at the bottom of the page here:<br><a href="http://wiki.acemonstertoys.org/Kinect">http://wiki.acemonstertoys.org/Kinect</a><br><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 5:14 PM, Taylor Alexander <span dir="ltr">&lt;<a href="mailto:tlalexander@gmail.com">tlalexander@gmail.com</a>&gt;</span> wrote:<br>
