Russian businessman Konstantin Popov started his business with the development of games and at some point are faced with the need to make more than a dozen different 3D models. For their creation from scratch had to pay quite a decent amount, so Constantine began to think seriously about how to make the modeling process more simple and, most importantly, available to everybody. It is obvious that three-dimensional models are needed not only to creators of games. They use scientists, doctors, developers of technology, master of computer special effects, the list is endless. Plus, of course, all those firms that produce or sell, and I want to show potential buyers your product in literally from all sides directly on the Internet. It is for this category of businessmen Konstantin and decided to make a bet, opening your company Cappasity. Its main product is 3D-scanning Easy 3D Scan.

Constantine offers along with soft buy complex and expensive equipment. The fact that the program is intended for use on laptops and devices 2-in-1 with built-in cameras Intel RealSense. In order to begin to create three-dimensional models of products for an online store, its owner need only three things: a computer with camera, Intel, a suitable subscription to Easy 3D Scan and a table for the subject shooting with a swivel mechanism. Will suit even the usual rotary table from IKEA, which costs a little more than 500 rubles, so the initial cost of the "Studio" easily fit into the $1000. The final cost of the launch depends mainly on the selected laptop model.
Of course, for program Easy 3D Scan hidden thousands of hours of work of programmers and dozens of sleepless nights, but in practice it looks extremely simple. First you need to set the scanned object on a table and point it to the Intel RealSense camera. Then select the scanning area and includes the mechanism to scroll the table. After one full revolution takes about 1.5 minutes and on the computer screen been showing off the finished model. Surprisingly, for such operations do not need a powerful discrete graphics, enough built-in chipset Intel HD Graphics.
To work with Easy 3D Scan do not need expensive equipment, enough laptop with Intel RealSense camera
The Intel RealSense camera at the same time performs two tasks: recognize the geometry of the object, and captures the textures, which are subsequently superimposed on the monochrome model. Full HD resolution is enough to obtain acceptable for use in a Network result. However, the developers have foreseen the possibility of connecting SLR cameras to capture the textures of the object in resolution of 20-25 MP. The scan results can be exported to Maya or 3DS Max for further refinement. But the basic idea of Constantine lies in the fact that the software helped quickly, efficiently and inexpensively to create the model of "turnkey". In my opinion, even the possibility of a beta version meet these criteria almost one hundred percent.
At the same time experts Cappasity working on solutions that will be of interest not only to small and medium and large businesses. One of them is the automated scanning system of the person in full growth. The equipment set consists of a solid rotating platform, the most common halogen lights and three modules with Intel RealSense cameras connected to computers Intel NUC.

The latter perform a very simple task: get information from the cameras and then transmitted to the "big" PC with installed Easy 3D Scan. And already on it all the data consistently the data can be reduced into one finished model. Check for yourself – it works!

Another interesting development Cappasity – multiple-camera system of shooting a subject on an industrial scale. While this is just a table with a transparent surface on which the top, bottom and sides "look" of the Intel Real Sense camera. But in the future it will all be seamlessly assembled into a single lightbox with indirect lighting. The cameras not only track the subject but out of his size (helps built-in IR sensor). This seemingly insignificant detail is extremely important for major brands and stores with tens of thousands of product items on the virtual shelves. The fact that often one and the same thing can be manufactured at different factories. Final dimensions the result obtained is also different, so to check them you need to keep a big staff of special staff who take your measurements manually. In addition, as in the case of solution for small stores, the system also can connect professional SLR camera to take pictures of textures in high resolution.

Release Cappasity Easy 3D Scan is scheduled for November 2015, and the program will be released in six languages, including, of course, Russian. It is assumed free distribution model, but the functionality will depend on the subscription type selected. The developers will create a few handy options that will help you choose the best amount of cost per month.
Will remain a space for free experimentation home users – they will be free to print a few models and free to experiment with consumersim functions Easy 3D Scan. For example, to create three-dimensional selfie, print that can be ordered from partners Cappasity. It is not excluded, incidentally, that Easy 3D Scan will be sold complete with 3D printers, if Cappasity will be able to negotiate with their producers.
Well, at the time of release of this material, the team of Konstantin Popov went on to conquer the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. With me in the USA they have everything you need to create 3D models of the forum in full growth. And I definitely think Cappasity will be able to surprise them! published
