High Resolution 3D Scanner MKII
The MK2 version of our high resolution Desktop 3D Scanner is now available on Kickstarter at a substantial discount on the retail price, so get it while its hot.
With a complete redesign now using the Raspberry PI 3B+ on board to provide wireless communication and scanning Independent of your PC, whilst retaining full Raspbian desktop including web browser, mail client etc. For our MK2 hardware we simplified the design and moved to duel uprights which substantially improves scanning accuracy and a belt drive turntable for more accurate and smoother rotation of the scanned object amongst many other improvements.
Our aim from day one was to produce a highly accurate 3d scanner that could actually be used to build and reproduce objects.
We have looked at different technology’s such as lidar and Photogrammetry but if was obvious that these technology’s although they have the advantage of speed of scan, lack the accuracy required to produce usable models for 3D Printing.
By using line lasers we have achieved a staggering depth accuracy of 0.05mm.
We have developed our own, easy to use software and custom built controller electronics to produce a robust, modular 3D Scanner with the well established Raspberry Pi 3B+ and Pi V2 8 Mega pixel camera at its core, this allows the scanner to operate independently of your PC freeing you up to work while scans are in progress.
Communication with the 3D Scanner from the PC / Laptop is done via wireless or cabled networking, simply send instructions to the scanner from our software and then let it get on with it.
Scans can be edited and exported to an STL file for printing, through our simple to use yet powerful WildCats 3D editor software, with many unique features
Continuing / Further development,
WildCats3D have taken a unique open approach to product production, allowing people to where possible make parts for the 3D Scanner themselves to benefit people who may be on a tight budget.
The WildCats3D software has been priced to allow for continued development, with upgrades and new features being added all the time.
Our scanner is available in several forms, Fully built, Full kit and several Partial kits, to allow you the flexibility either to purchase a pre built or build a High Quality, High Resolution 3D Scanner. (See the table below or our Kickstarter Page)
