DIMBODY

 

Dimbody desktop scanner. Indiegogo teaser.

 

We previously covered Alessandro Grossi’s DIY 3d scanner. Now this project is becoming a start-up known as the DIMBODY. He describes, “DIMBODY is a 3d scanner, a digitalizer that allows you to take a physical object, and turn it into a digital 3D model on your computer.

 

DIMBODY is based of triangulation between laser plane and a CMOS monochromatic sensor, it acquires point coordinates of an object (point cloud).

The point cloud is then transformed in a 3d surface by the software and saved as a STL file.

Then you can print it in your 3d printer, or scale, transform, modify it in a CAD software.”

Technology is about adapting and creating to meet a need.  In some schools access to ICT's that are the 'norm' in other schools can be difficult due to expense or location.  This video shows how an IWB can be created for under  $55 (US), by adapting a few items for a new purpose is possible to meet the needs of a classroom.

The Future of Design

At SpaceX, we love to play with cutting-edge technology and are always looking for ways to turn science fiction into reality. It not only advances our work, but it's also fun! Shown here is a concept we're exploring: natural gesture-based interaction with a computer-aided design program, leveraging a Leap Motion Controller.

This system is just the beginning, and gives a glimpse into what may come in the worlds of engineering and design. Special thanks to Leap Motion, Siemens and Oculus VR, as well as NVIDIA, Projection Design, Provision, and to everyone enabling and challenging the world to interact with technology in exciting new ways.

Mengru Lyu's curator insight, March 27, 2015 5:38 AM

the awesome leap motion is shown in this video, the object can be translate, zoom in and out, spin around the screen by hand gestures. If it is also controlled by voice and language, this would eliminate the need for a keyboard and mouse. In addition, the future of design might go thought the processes like following: get some concepts from your mind then translate that to objects, finally take the virtual objects and be able to make it real by printing it.
