As part of our effort to support the University’s DEC initiative and to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration, the Library is now introducing 3D scanning services. The objective is to foster creativity, scholarly research among CityU staff and students. 3D scanner analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance. The data so collected can be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. The Library provides two types of 3D scanners. Explore and try out your new ideas using these scanners!
Handheld Scanner (Structure Scanner) [Seat: 901]
The Handheld 3D Scanner is the Structure Sensor 3D Scanner which can be checked out at the IT Help Desk. This Scanner uses an infrared laser projector to cast a specific pixel pattern on the scene in front of the sensor. The Scanner has a great potential for 3D modelling and discovery.
