Portraying the 3D surface of physical objects finds its applications in various fields, including archaeology, mechanic design, medical study, vehicle manufacturing, and etc. 3D scanning allows the end-user to quickly input the physical surface data of the object of interest into the computer correctly and efficiently. Xscanner is a product that can reduce the cost of hardware components necessary for building a desktop color 3D surface scanner and then applies the solution to physically build such a device. The aim of our project is not to achieve scanning result with professional quality. Instead, it is to develop a low-cost solution for building a functional 3D color scanner by employing more advanced image processing methods. The project is also to initiate the development of future cost-effective color 3D surface scanners.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
