3D Modeling & Making
3D Scanning and Sharing
- 3D scanning: Armed with an iPad (also can be mounted to iPhone) and a Structure or iSense scanner, check out these two apps to kick off your 3D scanning endeavors.
- 3D model display (sans-printing): I am a big fan of SketchFab (see below). As a way to not only share scans, but also to annotate your scans and 3D models.
