Creating mixed-reality installations by combining 3D scanning and projection mapping

Used a Faro 3D scanner with Dara from Jahan to scan in a simple real-world polyhedron, converted it to an editable mesh using MeshLab and 3DMax, and used it as a base for a scary projection mapped face!

Did a demo/workshop of this project for the 2017 LivePerformers Meeting in Amsterdam.  with Dara Bonakdar.

Duration: an hour

Friday, 13 May 2016 | 15:30 > 16:30 | CONCERTZAAL Lectures
Workshop and demo for 3D scan-to-projector mapping workflow


Topics include best practices for using 3D scanners and cameras, current uses of the technology, methods and formats of using 3D scan data, and techniques of bringing scan data into projection environments.

Software covered will be MeshLab, 3DStudio Max, Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Recep, Touch Designer, hardware includes the FARO Focus3D laser scanner.
