About News Hardware Software Contact


About


FabScan is an open-source, do-it-yourself 3D laser scanner.
It started out as a Bachelor's thesis by Francis Engelmann, supervised by René Bohne.

In 2014, development was taken over by René Bohne and Mario Lukas.

FabScan was featured on Thingiverse, it's popular on GitHub, and we have a small but steadily growing mailing list on Google Groups.
