3D Camera that Outputs to 3D Printer

Post by Oxford7 » Mon May 21, 2018 3:36 pm

Hello:
Is there a 3D camera that outputs .stl or related file types? I'd like to be able to take a picture of a large object such as a tree and load it into my printer. Then I would print out a small tree. Can this be done?
Thank you
Chris

Yes, it can be done but the solution may not be in your budget. This article just arrived today from All3DP.

I use the structure sensor - https://structure.io/ - that I bought a few years ago. After working on it through my iphone and ipad air 2, I finally bought the software to use it with a computer. It outputs to a zip file that holds the related info with a .obj file - though since I haven't used the software in a bit, you might have more options.

I know I can directly drop that into simplify 3d and print those files.
