3D3 Solutions announces the release of KScan3D at Siggraph 2012 today.
KScan3D is a Kinect-based 3D scanning software running on Windows OS allowing users to capture 3D scans with a click of a button. Users can scan, edit, process, and export finalized data in a variety of common file formats such as .obj, .stl, .ply, and .asc formats for visual effects, games, CAD / CAM, 3D printing, online / web visualization, and other applications.
KScan3D is available today and can be purchased separately or as a bundled package with the Kinect for Windows hardware for $299 and $599.
Here is how it works:
Kinect sensors gather color and depth data.
KScan3D converts this data into a 3D mesh.
Capture data from multiple angles to create a complete 360 degree mesh.
Delete unneeded points, smooth data etc.

"why can't software like this every work on a real computer (ie linux, unix, mac, abacus, soviet tanks) anything besides microsoft, its thoroughly confusing and depressing..." Because there's not as big of a commercial market for soviet tanks-based workstations.

I'm interested in reverse engineering worn or broken components and downloading the digital information into an EOS additive manufacturing system. Is there software which will "easily adjust" the digital information to correct for worn areas or for obvious imperfections in the part, i.e.corrosion pitting or adhesive used for repair. By "easily adjust" I mean the software prompting the CAD draftsman by questioning anomilies in the surface profile or the straightness of a surface.
