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.
