#lazyWeb question: what's the android software that you can use to take #3d scans by moving your camera around? I'm looking for something free (and hopefully #foss) that generates open formats, like #STL.
My friend had a mastectomy, so she wants to scan her chest to get the current contour of the impacted side, then do a left-to right flip to get a mirror of the remaining boob. This shape would need to be an STL that I would subtract from a block shape in in a CAD program. I'd then print that mould in PLA with a 3d printer, seal it, and pour in silicon to make a prosthetic that matches the remaining side.
She said she also wants it to have space to store a bluetooth headset and a mobile phone or to ~be~ a mobile phone, but I think the form factor of this would not be good and, anyway, is too much for version 1.0.
Aside form the absurd last bit, has anyone heard of a project like this?
Realising I really missed a trick by not making my own "pack and play" phone from my own prosthetic wearing days.
@celesteh ben heck has been following that exact process for his iron man inspired auto-facemask on his yourube channel.
except on his face and not his chest . obviously.
@celesteh awe shucks he’s not using an app.
@celesteh I'm not sure about Android apps for these things but I have tried using photogrammetry to create 3D models from real life objects. Then you can just use any relatively good camera and take a bunch of pictures and construct a 3D mesh from that. I used Meshroom last time I tried this technique and it worked pretty well and is foss. https://alicevision.org/#meshroom
@celesteh Keep in mind though that photogrammetry does not build in any real world scale so you will have to scale up/down the 3D model afterwards to make it work perfectly.
@celesteh I think you accidentally wrote "absurd last bit" where you meant to write "incredibly awesome last bit".
Me: Silicon is roughly as heavy as water, so this won't be light unless I figure out a way to make it hollow, which might also make it look deflated. I don't know.
Her: I could keep my phone and keys in there! Or, maybe it could just ~be~ a phone!
Me: So you want a fake tit as a spare handbag?
Her: No, I want it it because I keep noticing people looking at me funny for being so lopsided.
Me: Do you think people will look at you ~less~ if you pop out your boob and make a call on it?
