The Create and Maker Space has an HP Sprout Pro for your use

What is a 3D scanner?

A 3D scanner is a device for transferring a real-life 3D object into virtual 3D space. It uses light and cameras to interpret real-life geometry and create a 3D model that is true to life.

What can you do with it?

A 3D scanner is used when you wish to transfer a model from real life into a computer model. This could be useful when creating an object to enclose another object. An example of this is a phone case, where the user scans the phone in as a model, then creates the case using 3D modelling software to fit the phone.

How to get started…

To use our 3D scanner, you’ll need to:

1. Gain access to the Create and Maker Space; and

2. Complete our 3D scanner training session.

To help you create what you imagine, we’ve put together a user guide, an inspire guide and offer regular workshops (via what’s on). Plus we have trained creative technologists onsite to lend a hand.
