RealView 3D scanner preview

Looking a bit like a sci-fi toy, the RealView 360 scanner has a platform for your object that rotates while a turret-like device with dual cameras scans in all the object's surface data. The result: a single 3D image that you can import into any application. It's a way-cool trick, and RealView makes models that scan in VGA, HD and larger-format resolutions.

Looks like it just does a QTVR type thing, not an actual 3D model? Nifty, but not as cool as something that spat out a DXF and texture map would be!

I'm not sure it is just a QTVR thing, it looks similar to the Intricad 3D scanner (only not a self build unit) which is already fairly cheap and builds 3d models.

Another one avalible is David Scanner.

Its all very interesting, you wonder what effect these scanners will have on the 3D Industry. Will we all be buying a lot more clay and spending less time in zbrush?

Those other two do look interesting!

If you look at the http://www.real-view3d.com/ site they sure make it sound like it just spits out some kind of 2D QTVR thing, nothing about any true 3D application.
