The Spark

Igniting the imagination through cooperative learning

3D Scanning

Turn real-world objects into digital files with one of our three 3D scanners. These machines can scan regular objects and turn them into files that you can edit, share, and use for any project you can dream up. One scanner is available for short-term loan and the other two are for in-space use only.  

See our Overview page for submission information.

Structure Sensor Information 

  • When used as a 3D scanner, Structure Sensor allows you to capture dense geometry in real-time. This enables you to simulate real world physics and create high-fidelity 3D models with high-resolution textures in seconds. 
  • The magic of 3D depth sensing begins with the ability to capture fast, accurate, dimensions of objects and environments.
  • Structure Sensor doesn’t just capture one dimension; it captures everything in view, all at once. Large-scale reconstruction tasks are easy with Structure Sensor.
  • Website: Structure Sensor
  • Info: Quick Start Guide

Structure Sensor Circulation Information

  • Catalog Record: Check Availability / Place a Hold
  • Fines Rate: $10 per day late
  • Notes: The Structure Sensor is checked out as a kit including lightning cable, power adapter, USB hacker cable, precision bracket with aluminum latch, iPad mini, and user manual.
