FabScan: The 100-Euro 3D Laser Scanner
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.

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

Update

The new FabScan Pi works as a standalone device controlled with a web browser. We highly recommend to use this advanced version instead of the original FabScan. Housing, Laser, Arduino and FabScan Shield can be reused, but the additional Raspberry Pi allows a use as a standalone device and the better Raspberry Pi camera aloows a higher resolution. The user interface and scan processing is also far more advanced.
