Try DAVID, a free and easy-to-use software for low-cost 3D laser scanning!

- A camera (e.g. web cam)
- A hand-held line laser (starting at €19.90)
- Two plain boards in the background
- A Windows PC
- Our free software DAVID-laserscanner

Or use the brand-new DAVID Starter-Kit!

If you don't want to start searching and tinkering,
the DAVID Starter-Kit contains all necessary hardware and software to set up your own 3d scanner!

1. Set up background and camera
2. Calibrate your camera with one click
3. Start scanning by sweeping the laser line over the object
4. Gaze at the 3D window and export your result to .OBJ
5. Optional: Automatically stitch several scans/meshes
with DAVID-Shapefusion and export .OBJ, .STL, or .PLY

You will find some amazing results in our gallery and on the user pages in our wiki. Also you can download DAVID and use a test video file instead of a real camera, so you will have 3D data within a minute!
