3D scan test case: preparation with April-tag registration marks     3D scan test case: Hamming brick, reconstructed

This chapter explores the use of 3D scanners to produce X3D models.

On 22 July 2016, the Web3D Consortium CAD Working Group held our initial workshop at the Web3D 2016 Conference. Participants explored how to achieve a combined X3D Profile for CAD, 3D Printing and 3D Scanning. Much coordinated work has occurred since then.

The following workshop and VR Hackathon were held as part of the Web3D 2017 Conference on 2-7 June 2017 in Brisbane Australia. Activities included Virtual Banana Scanning with original model (1994) and new model (2017) results posted here.
