Using an Xbox Kinect sensor and ReconstructMe, I scanned a bunch of objects and people to experiment with 3D scanning and 3D printing. I then printed everything out and produced a nice little pile of brightly colored prints, which were given out to the all of the participants.
Over spring break I got my hands on an XBox Kinect so I could start experimenting with it as a 3D scanning interface. I’ve been working with ReconstructMe Console, which I’ve heard a lot of good things about, and I’ve been getting some pretty decent results. I was hoping to be able to use a […]
In the fall of 2015 I was invited to teach a class called “How to Build Almost Anything” at Nebraska’s first and only FabLab, located at the Metropolitan Community College (MCC) in Omaha. Inspired by the legendary class of the same name taught for many years at MIT, this intensive 11-week class was intended to […]
I’ve spent a considerable amount of time this semester researching and experimenting with various 3D scanning systems with the eventual goal of scanning student pieces in some sort of curricular activity. I started off by scanning objects (including lots of cool glass work) using 123D Catch. I learned quite a bit about how to successfully […]
Recently I was given the opportunity to participate in an evening-long “science event” for a group of about 100 Girl Scouts from the south-central Nebraska area to get them excited about STEM fields. Not being a pure “STEM” adherent myself, I chose to expand the topic of my presentation to talk about STEAM, emphasizing creativity […]
UPDATE: Turns out the show starts on September 26th, not August 26th like I originally thought! Earlier this year, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and have begun the journey towards figuring out what I want to do with the skills and ideas I’ve developed […]
