3D Live Scanner [Android app]

I tried out the 3D Live Scanner app by Lubos Vonasek Programmierung, and at the time of posting this – it was still in early access, but I found it to be incredibly functional while scanning the front room I use as a studio.

It’s currently free, and technically unreleased: so grab it while you can.

I’ve only explored the one feature where you can scan a room, but hot dang – when I get a day off, you know I’ll be going out to Sheffield city centre, and trying to 3D scan some landmarks.

US Instant Meshes:

If you’re looking for a quick guide to Instant Meshes, I recommend the Peter France tutorial on it: though this is focused around scanning individual objects, not entire rooms – which is why I left it out of this video.

If that name rings a bell, it bloody well should – he was once part of Corridor Crew….

Music: Unicorn Heads – Dreaming in 432Hz https://youtu.be/bsFkZR7FVM8
This track is CC0 but I still wanted to credit it, as I always do. As an avid lucid dreamer who listens to binaural tones, this is the closest I could get without hypnotising my audience.

I found some Sheffield buildings on 3D Warehouse

I found some accurate representations of 3D buildings on 3D Warehouse of Sheffield, and tried to export from Sketchup to fbx, with a view to import the textured assets into Unreal for the Sheffield game I’m working on.

I started the process in Linux, but had to actually dual boot into Windows to finish the video, with some help of some text to speech AI’s from https://play.ht
