Armada is a simple 3D scanner built so that anyone can create high-quality 3D models of objects. It works through triangulation of the cameras and the cross-beam laser. The cameras are angled to track the position of the laser on a surface, providing the three necessary reference points to create a cloud point. During a scan thousands of cloud of points are formed and later merged into polygons. When you turn Armada on it syncs with an iOS or Android device over bluetooth. The 3D capture process is streamlined, so that all you need to do to scan an object is hit the start button. Armada builds a STP file in real-time on your phone. Once the transfer is complete the file can be opened and edited in any 3D modeling software.
Armada was designed while I was a student at RISD in 2012. It is a conceptual scanner.
