Introduce students to 3D scanning
Basics of 3D Scanning
• Use light to evaluate the surface of an object
Time Of Flight
Signal sent @ t = 0
Impact @ t = 1ns
Signal received @ t=3ns
Distance = c x t/2
= 3x10^8 x 1.5 x10^-9
Return @ t = 1ns

"The task of creating such highly realistic, computer-generated bears
does not start on the computer," states Sean Varney,
Sean Varney goes on to say, "We use the VI-910 digitizer from
Konica Minolta to capture 3D data sets of each of the models

Safety First
Class 1 Laser
Class I lasers are low powered devices that are considered safe from all potential
hazards. Some examples of Class I laser use are: laser printers, CD players, CD ROM
devices, geological survey equipment and laboratory analytical equipment. No
individual, regardless of exposure conditions to the eyes or skin, would be expected
to be injured by a Class I laser. No safety requirements are needed to use Class I laser
• Describe object and dimensions
• Calculate distance of scanner
• Place object
• Adjust scanner
• Scan
• Evaluate
Notes for Scanning
• Consider using flat/featureless side for bottom
• Capture side or sides with most features
• We are using the telephoto lens
• We will be using One Scan mode
• Accuracy increases as distance increases, shadowing decreases as distance
