As you know, we presented our ReconstructMe software at the 3D Body Scanning Conference. Christoph hold a keynote on Wednesday in the technical session. A Portable, Low Cost 3 D Body Scanning System. The response was amazing, many questions, many answers. We are on the right way! It motivated us to go further on developing. We met interesting people and he got home with many new ideas.

3D printing and 3D scanning made the jump to your home or office! Scientists are using this technology for a long time and you would never believe, what they are using it for. Take a look. We have searched the internet to find some excellent examples of what has already been created, and what possibilities lie ahead.

After 3D scanning and 3D printing got affordable the last years, we thought about the printing materials. Is there a difference? What material for what use? There is a wide range of manufacturing materials, the range lets you maximize the benefits of 3D printing.
There are many types of material in general. Depending on what you want to do. Plastic, metal or ceramic, for example. It also depends on the printer you have, working temperature and much more. But do not get frustrated. Many of the online shops offer various sample material kits, good documented datasheet and comparison sheets.
Well, the most important thing is, do not just buy the cheapest one. Ok, price is a big point, but think of the results, too! Do you want a smoothness in you printing results? A detailed version or colored one?
Send us your material shops. We always searching for new sources..
What is you favorite material and what have you scanned and printed so far? Send us your scans!

ReconstructMe will be showing off its capabilities at the 4th international 3D body scanning conference taking place on the 19th and 20th of November. We’ll be showing off scanning with multiple cameras, post-processing and auto-calibration features of ReconstructMe SDK. If you want to meet us in person, make sure you’ll register for the
4th International 3D Body Scanning Conference
The Westin Long Beach
333 E Ocean Blvd
Long Beach, CA 90802, USA
Christoph will be holding a speech on Wednesday in technical session 13 – A Portable, Low-Cost 3D Body Scanning System. Besides, there is enough time to get scanned during the poster session.
See you in Long Beach.

The best 3D real-time scanning software
- By Christoph Heindl on 04.10.2013
one week after the launch of ReconstructMe 2.0, we are happy to announce that we’ve just made ReconstructMe SDK 2.0 publicly available. ReconstructMe SDK is the reconstruction engine used by ReconstructMe to perform 3D scanning in real-time.
The SDK update brings tons of new features and many new examples. Make sure you don’t miss the following sections!
3D Color Capture
The new ReconstructMe SDK enables you capture geometric and color information in real-time. The colorize example shows how you can capture a colorized 3D model with just a few lines of code. A resampling algorithm automatically optimizes the surface while maintaining its appearance as the following video shows
Multiple sensor handling
With our latest release we made using multiple sensors as easy as never before. Have a look at our body-scanning example that uses 2 sensors that work together and is written in less than 100 lines of code including calibration. Here’s a sneak peak at the result
Point and Shoot
Using ReconstructMe’s ability to perform global alignment, its easy to write an application that uses only key-frames for reconstruction. This is especially interesting for lower-powered devices such as note-books and tablets where real-time scanning is computationally too expensive. Our point and shoot example shows how trivial it is to implement
More Features and Bug-Fixes
Besides the features mentioned above here’s a short list on new things you’ll find in ReconstructMe SDK 2.0
- Sensor Positioning We’ve added some intelligent sensor positioning techniques which can automatically detect the floor and construct an aligned volume around it. This technique was also for the experimental hidden feature in ReconstructMe 2.0
- Setup Tuner The setup tuner will automatically adjust reconstruction parameters to the chosen volume size.
- Performance Improvements The performance of alignment routines greatly improved by a module that allows a position forecast based on the tracked camera path.
- Alignment Stability We’ve added an option to allow tracking even if the sensor is not looking at the volume at all. This feature is best used for static scenes.
- Bugfixes We’ve fixed many sensor related issues. Intel HD series and AMD 79xx series are now supported.
The ReconstructMe SDK can be downloaded from our developer page.

the waiting is over. We have now officially released ReconstructMe 2.0 for Windows. ReconstructMe now features a brand new slick UI design and brings support for colorizing your scans. The new UI allows you to create your setup more easily. Background helpers automatically choose the best settings for your scanning task. A simplification module optimizes your surface for less memory consumption while maintaining its appearance.
This is only the beginning of a huge adventure for all of us. Many features are about to come to ReconstructMe 2.0 such as texturing from photos, cleaning and completing meshes as well as mobile support. One experimental feature is already included in the current release, albeit a bit hidden, and waits for you to discover it. We are giving away one free PRO license for the first explorer who unveils it. Hint: we are using the feature in our demo video below.
The following video quickly introduces ReconstructMe 2.0 and shows how easy it is to generate colorized 3d scans.
You can download ReconstructMe 2.0 from our Get Started Now! page.

we just wanted to let you know that the public release of ReconstructMe 2.0 is nearing completion. ReconstructMe 2.0 will be available for public release on
Tuesday, 24th of September 2013
We’d like to thank all of our beta users for providing invaluable feedback. The winners of the PRO licenses for most innovative feature requests will announced next. We wish everyone a nice weekend and conclude with a nice scan from Mark Schafer of a toy-pig.
