Introductiongrape3D is an open source 3D scanner application. The software reconstructs a 3D model with corresponding texture from a 2D movie file. The resulting model can be imported in any 3D application like Blender, ZBrush©, Maya© or 3DS Max©. grape3D is GPL licenced.
How does it work?Here's an example at different stages of the scanning process;
The green line is the automatically detected line by the software.
In this case we have used default settings. Tweaking the settings
will improve the results. For this example we have chosen not to do so.
The mesh generated is still very noisy. In next releases we will
work on automatically optimizating the mesh.

29-March-2011Unfortunately progress has been slow over the last year. Main achievements are reduction of dependencies and the support of MacOSX. From now testbuilds are available from here.
30-July-2010After much work grape3D v0.03 has been released. This release is the first that is UI based. Though still in beta, it is a working version. Looking forward for comments and feedback.
19-July-2010After carefull thought, it has been decided that ScanDraiD will be renamed to grape3D. All references to the old name will be phased out over the next months. The new pending release will be named grape3D v0.03. Also a new domain has been registered (grape3D.org). This website will be taken online over the next months. Stay tuned...
24-July-2009ScanDraiD v0.0.2 has been released.
