CNC Machining of Laser Scanned Rooster by Waynee Hill

Some time ago i laser scanned a wooden Rooster in my home (My son has broken his legs now)...  Waynee Hill asked me to machine this model on his CNC machine... I provided him the model in OBJ format and he created the two-sided Tool path with Vectric Cut3D software...

He was kind enough to partially share with us the pictures and videos of Rooster...

Here is the video

Banana Scan

I have seen lot of Banana's scan on the internet so i also tried one to take the credit . This banana is special as i didn't added any powder or spray on it.. You can see the dark areas are not scanned.. However i am in process of combining the scans and let the Poisson fusion works on it.. Following is the Color depth image of misc. scans:

All the scans:

and finally combined:

Dragon Head Scanning for Mayo Pardo, USA

A couple of days ago i received a Dragon Head for Laser scanning from Mr. Mayo Pardo , USA... He want to make a Mail box out of it on his CNC.. He wrote me about his idea of How he will machine it:

"For the machining technique, I was thinking of cutting the head as a left side and a right side.Each side will need to be cut in several slices which I will glue together.Then I would glue the left and right sides together to complete the head. This is going to be a challenging project for me! And then to paint it to look like the model is another challenge"

Mayo is involve in Styrofoam carving business and we can see some cool work of him in the following websites...

It was a difficult scan because of intricate details and undercuts.. Moreover, the size of Dragon head was very small.. I did about 17 scans from all the angles to collect maximum details out of it.. the final 3D model is about High resolution 58Mb file... The scaling of the Dragon Head will not loose resolution...

Here is the dragon Head I received:

Here is the Color depth images of some of the scans:

Following are the scans in Assembled form:
and the final water tight 3D model:

Bunch of Leaves...

Yesterday i was walking outside and found a beautiful tree. The Leaves of the tree were connected through small branches and hanging toward the ground.. I collected a small branch and tried to scan it..
Last year when i was in Italy i saw some trees with similar leaves.. ..The same leaves i saw on many ornamental art displayed various parts of Paris and Italy......Unfortunately i not remember the name of that tree, it seems that the Tree is Holy in Christianity or in ancient roman empire...

I have placed the leaves bunch into a Book and closed it overnight..In the morning i scanned those leaves...

Case Study- Scanning of Metallic Carved Horse

i have a metallic horse with fine carving details... To test and improve my laser scanning setup i put this horse into practice: Following were the goals of this case study:
1- To determine How minute details i can get on such shiny metallic objects
2- To adjust parameters Hardware as well as software to achieve my goal
3- To do a Planeless scan and merge

A Fine powder spray was done on the Horse to make it dull but in such a way that the details can be viewed with the webcam... My Laser is mounted on 1:256 Gear box that is driven with stepper motor... I am using DIY SLA7062M based stepper driver that can run the stepper motor in 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 micro-steps ... To get the fine details at 800 x 600 camera resolution and 150mm calibration scale using green line laser i changed the microstep mode from 1/2 step to 1/16 steps.. Now I have resolution of (200 x 16x 256 =819200 pulses per one complete rotation i.e.0.000439 degrees/step ). This resolution is fine enough to get the Horse details from 3meters distance from the Webcam...However i have kept the horse about 300mm far  from the Camera ...Following are 4 multiple scans of the horse:

The results I found were satisfactory as the Webcam Logetech9000 has the limit... To get more fine details I have to do:
1- To get expensive CCD Monochrome camera
2- To get fine green line laser that should be focusable

The thinner the line the more details we can get.

Grape Vine Scan Vs Grape Leaf Scan with Old setup

 Recently did laser scanning of grape vine.. The results are not good, as i have achieved unsatisfactory results .. The resolution was not good as the small capillaries in leafs can not be seen :(...

I have to improve my laser scanner setup to get the details as close as Human Hair.... I think with proper adjustment of laser scanning parameters and Laser line thickness reduction i would be able to achieve my target resolution...

The Grape Leaf i did about a year ago has some fine details in it.. You can click on the picture below and you will find how High resolution i got from my previous setup.. As i have achived the results earlier so i can achive the results now too.. I need patience, hardwork and dedication to achieve this goal..

360 degree Spray Bottle Scan

Attached you can see the scan of spray bottle  .. Total 9 scans , each scan cycle took 2minutes.. Approximate height of the spray bottle is 250mm and 80mm in diameter...

The alignment and stitching was a difficult part due to symmetry in the model.. However, i learn a lot in stitching the scans... The results are attached...
