Introduction:

REAL3D SCANNER (formerly 3DRACS) allows you to make your own 3D scanner with a single camera and a video projector. It provides you a complete platform to do research on 3D scanning systems and helps you to analyze different parameters involved in SL 3D scanning. It is also an extensible mesh and points processing system that can perform smoothing, cleaning, filtering, decimation, reconstruction from points, registration, merging, and hole filling, etc. It has ability to import and export more than 60 well-known 3D geometry file formats, including (3D PDF ready) U3D, PLY, STL, OBJ, OFF, 3DS, WRL, COLLADA, X3D, IV. It also allows you to view, convert, edit, and enhance 2D images in 3D environment. It has an array of features that include image viewing, smoothing, noise removal, edge detection, resizing, and color adjustments, etc.
