TEACH session proposal: mobile 3D scanning

I would like to propose a TEACH session for mobile 3D scanning.  Using a laptop and inexpensive software, a Kinect sensor can be made to function as an inexpensive and portable 3D scanner. Using a Structure Sensor Scanner, an iPad Air and several free apps, a range of people, objects and spaces can be 3D scanned without electronic tethers.  3D scans produced by these devices can be readily manipulated in widely available 3D software.  I would like to teach a small group of curious colleagues how to capture 3D scans using mobile technology.

I am using these technologies in my studio practice and am interested to share and swap techniques with other artists who may also be exploring these tools.  I would like to effectively teach these skills to students in the context of studio art courses.  A brainstorming session to produce ideas for studio art assignments that incorporate 3D scanning techniques will end this session.

Darren Douglas Floyd will teach this session.  A small group of participants will learn these techniques using my own equipment.

  1. I brought my structure and iPad Air2 if you think you need to borrow them for the session. Depending on overlap I would be interested in the classroom brainstorming session.
