Super High-Speed 3D Scanner

Beastcam Super High-Speed 3D Scanner Invented to Create 3D Models of Live Sharks

Kira | January 13, 2016

With the goal of creating accurate 3D models of live sharks, geckos and other fast-moving animals, functional biologists from the University of Massachusetts Amherst used off-the-shelf-materials to put together a portable, high-speed, and low-cost 3D scanning system they are calling the Beastcam. Capable of 3D scanning car-sized objects in about 45 seconds, the user-friendly Beastcam can create high-quality 3D models of a wide variety of objects for research or 3D printing purposes.
