Is this what they use for 3d scaned games

Recommended Posts

There are are few Games out that brag about 3D Scanned models exact within in 1 mm

Like iRacing they brag how exact the Car and tracks are right down to cracks in pavement

iRacing is a True Race Simulator very high tech Simulator

is this the kind of stuff they would have used. I was just woundering

How many models in games are created like this now.

I'll guess yes.

I know of several people who use that or similar equipment.

 

 

Me want. :)

(Of course any product that says 'Get free quote' is likely out of my price range although I'd guess there are companies that will rent and or do the scanning for a less costly fee.)

There are some cheaper ways to do similar... the kinect cameras for Xbox do 3D scanning, don't they? And there was an app I had on my iphone... 123Dgo or something like that...

If you can scan a real world object and get an efficiently usable model with the exact dimensions, that sure beats a "By Hand" method in many circumstances. Gets the job quickly into the environment. Even if you have to tweak or repair it a bit.

 

Entire rooms and environments can also be scanned for interior levels on games and other CG projects with new scanning technology available.

 

It's a very exciting time for these things.

Yes- tis! Have you seen the real-estate scanning solution 'Matterport'? Turns your whole house into a 3d tour with highlight and bullet points called out. Camera runs some $3-4K...

I inherited one of these from my brother but the whole setup/xbox is still in its original box.

I thought I might set it up for scanning but saw that I needed that PC cable and... then read that they had discontinued making it.

I'm sure it's still available especially from third party sources.

 

From all that I've seen it works quite well.

Let us know about your experience.

a simple Structure scanner hooked to an iPhone or iPad is the best bang for the buck and it's portable

not good for fine details/small models, but good for people, statues, cars, large toys, etc.

laser limits the materials to be used, intense lighting can make scanning difficult

 

here is an example of something I scanned a few months ago - statue -> scan -> 3d print :-)
