So you want to digitize an object but can’t afford a 3D scanner? Well thanks to Milkscanner, all you need is a webcam, Lego (for some reason) and milk! Cerealnotincluded.

I apologize about my apparition, but I would like to know something about the "milkscanner" project. I didn't take my time to register because I thought first if I really need to do it. I mean that I'm not sure if I use that site again so my account will be erased. Call me a "passing".
Well, that's my "mystery" question. I do have that milkscanner program and it's about some kb.
It's included in the "MSBTOOLS.zip" archive. Is there a 'missing' program called "Mooviesandbox" and were can i find a trial version of it. Well, to be exact my wonder is if there is a tutorial tat can show me step by step how to scan in 3d with that milkscanner with ALL the software that I'll need?
Thanks in advance...
and sorry about my "scally" english!
at the end maby he took a picture of his head and put it in the scanner
Me want a milkscanner! xD lawl
i want a milkscanner!
I am really really unsure why he did the milk spoonfull by spoonfull
Let's just use the gas to fuel motorized transport, It's more fun to drive/ride then to play with lego's, don't you think?
yeah I was mocking the anonymous guy
Gasoline doesn't wash off as easily, doesn't make a solid background (It's kind of.. clear?) and actually dissolves certain paints. Not a good idea.
Oh, lets use GASOLINE to make a 3-d model.
To Rebel: remember that milk costs more per litre than gas ;)
Thanks Sofa...there were a lot of links off that site with cool concepts and ideas. There are a lot of people out there with significantly more time on their hands than me.
Bluerocker- check this out...
very smart idea... it should have been thought of sooner....
and give the 'boxy' look that his digitized face had and his obvious skill with legos, I'll bet that he made it out of legos !`:/
Does anybody have any links to other cool things built using LEGO?
I have the lego and the tupperware, can get hold of a webcam (can I use an eyetoy, I have that?...) But I don't think my PC can cope, and why? It's cool and all, but I simply have no reason for it.
Answer for hamster question: give him scuba-gear
Hypothesis for the head-at-the-and question: maybe he laid in a bath full of milk, and just used the part of his head...
Because milk is relatively inexpensive, washes off easily, and provides a "white background."
But why milk?
And I hope he didn't cut off his head to get the last image o.o
Sweet. Do you think my hamster will drown if I try to digitize him in milk?
wow that is a very creative and effective way of making a 3D model. For the people who dont know where the milk is, the liquid that he is putting into the tray is milk 0_0
wow that all went right over my head.... and made me thirsty
Ripley you retard...
ok. wow. thats interesting./
I just noticed what this used on his homepage, its a UT2k4 mod tool for making new characters for the game.
He uses the milk to section off the figurine by depth. Quite brilliant.
Interesting device, but the vid doesn't show a whole lot of its construction- most of the video focuses on the software part.
Why is it called Milkscanner? I didn't see any milk. Unless it stands for something?
The question I have is how did he 'Milk Scan' his own face for the end?
I wonder if theres any instructions on how to do this...
