Intel RealSense 3D Camera SR300 available for pre-order

Just pre ordered the Intel RealSense 3D Camera SR300 for $125 including shipping.

At the moment I am not impressed by the Flux scanning demo’s but I think when software progresses it will probably do a good job on smaller objects.

For the Realsense 3D I hope it will come to use doing 3D scanning of larger objects like people, probably busts or maybe even full body. All the other announced applications are a bonus for me.

There are long range and short range camera’s, the SR300 is a short range model but hopefully will scan objects from a maximum of 1,9 meter away.

Its cheaper (at least when preordering in my country) to a Kinect V2.0 and has higher specs

I’ve been debating whether or not to buy a structure sensor quite a bit. I have an XBox Kinect, although it’s for the game console instead of a PC so it will be black and white and it can’t be used for commercial use, but I guess either way I’d be doing myself a favor by buying a Skanect license…

I’ve also got a 20.2 MP camera coming as an Instructables prize, and I’m going to try Autodesk Memento and 123D Capture. Memento will take up to 40 photos, so I’ll see how that does. I guess I need to build a turntable next…

When will your scanner ship? Let us know how your adventure goes, I’m definitely interested to learn more about it!

Kinect V2 should be able to scan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQPTxiK-Crw

Hopefully the Realsense camera can do the same with the same ease.

It should be here within one month, I will certainly share some scan results.
