I'm looking to adapt my mode of delivery in schools, by creating 3D models of many of the replica prehistoric artefacts that I normally give to KS2 children to handle and explore. I've already tried photogrammetry with multiple photos and Autodesk 123D, but the package is no longer free and the process is slow. I'm considering buying a 3D scanner to speed up the workflow. My desktop computer is running Windows 8.1 and has an AMD A8 processor, which is apparently Intel i5 equivalent. We also have a more recent laptop running Windows 10. My teaching background is secondary ICT so I'm no stranger to computing equipment and its foibles, although I've been retired for a few years. Ideally I'd like a scanner that will capture anything up to full body size, as long as I don't have to spend a fortune on it. I believe some hand held units can do this. If full body isn't feasible, up to head and shoulders size would be OK. Most of the artefacts are less than 30cms long. If you have any experience of 3D scanning hardware and software in a school context I'd be most interested to hear your thoughts and recommendations. I don't mind spending on a versatile one, as it's for an established business venture that will (I hope) repay me eventually. I'm not yet considering 3D printing, but it may be a future option. Thank you in advance.
