Description

Description

Kinect Fusion allows you to paint in 3D using a Kinect device as a wand, aggregating a point cloud representing a 3D volume (and allowing you to export a mesh of the capture surface). Kinect Fusion started as a UK-based research project between Microsoft Research Cambridge and Imperial College London. It was introduced into the Kinect for Windows® SDK in the 1.7 release, and has the potential to enable low-cost, high-quality reality capture for anyone with a Kinect device. This class looks at a prototype integration of Kinect Fusion inside AutoCAD software, investigating the quality of the results and the potential for further development.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Developers who are interested in the integration of reality capture technology inside AutoCAD; and end users with some tolerance for programming-related information and discussions who want to get an overall understanding of Kinect Fusion and its potential for reality capture
