I’m developing 3D scanner as hobby project. It’s hardware part based on small 650nm 5mW laser module, 2mpx web camera, servo motor and Arduino. Corresponding software for PC are developing also. Here are some photos and video:
Here is example of the Python script which can be used to automate VC++ compilation and build process. It sequentially build VC Solutions and write short results to console window. If there were errors during compilation it will show them(only errors) and asks about continuing general build process.
I have and idea to create DSLR camera simulator. It should be an application where user can add different objects to scene and light sources (for example soft boxes), then move and rotate them. Also there should be a camera, which user will move too. Camera settings should be changeable. Also all of this should be presented in 3D mode. And the main feature will be ray-tracing module which will make rendering according to the camera settings. Main goal of application will allow user to play with light and DOF. I think that ray-tracing will be without material settings and textures.
