This is the first post.
We concluded after the first group meeting that we will in fact do the 3D reconstruction of objects using a laser scanner and camera. Hence the name of the blog.
This blog will be our diary during the course of the semester.
This first day we received two World Star Tech FLL series red laser line modules (fll5-3.5p-635-**) which emit a red thin line that we will use to construct 3D models of arbitrary shaped objects. We quickly gathered some components from the component shop (battery, wired and push-buttons) and created a nice hand-held scanning device.
