David 3D Scanner


Objects that scan well:

  • Small size (smaller than 6″ x 6″ x 6″)
  • Matte, non-reflective surfaces
  • Light in color

Setting Up the Projector:

Launch David 3D Scanner Pro on the Makerspace computer. Make sure both cables from the projector/camera are plugged into the computer, and turn on the projector using its power button.

The projector should project a pattern while the computer monitor continues to show the desktop. If this is not the case, check the computer display settings and the settings in the setup menu of David.

Right click on Desktop -> Display Settings

The computer monitor should be set as the “Primary Display” and “Multiple Displays” should be set to “Extend the displays”
