[hackspacebristol] 3D scanner for the hackspace

hard to say how useful it'd be - are you happy with the 3d scans you've made so far? is the detail fine enough to be useful?
All the best

Sorry for the delay in organizing the 3D scanning session - I broke my arm (again!) during my snowboarding trip.

However I've gone to the hackspace to try to compile Kinect Fusion, and I've succeeded in compiling and runnng it using my Kinect but there's one snag:

The NVidia GT 220 I put into the hackspace computer is below the specs needed to run Kinect Fusion - PCL developers have designed it for compute capability 2.0 and above, while the GT 220 is only at compute capability 1.2. I could dive deep into the code to make it work, however, indications are that even if it does it will be slow and unusable at about 2 fps.

Either we upgrade the hackspace graphics card again (could cost us somewhere between £40-100: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300884386248?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649) or we just conduct 3D scanning with someone's laptop with a powerful GPU.

So here's a question - how useful would it be to the hackspace to have a Kinect 3D scanner attached to the hackspace computer? It already has a 3D printer.
