3D Scanning

We offer a variety of methods of 3D scanning at both D.H. Hill and Hunt Library. While 3D scanning has not become as affordable and accessible as 3D printing, the Libraries has sought equipment that can introduce our users to 3D scanning in an easy-to-learn way. All of our 3D scanners are available for use by NCSU students, faculty, and staff, free of charge.

Here are the options available:

Matter and Form 3D Scanner Hunt and D.H. Hill Makerspaces easy to use tabletop scanner for small, simple objects
Structure 3D Sensor Hunt and Hill Technology Lending iPad-based handheld scanner for larger objects, people, and rooms
NextEngine 3D Scanner HD D.H. Hill Library VR Studio (West Wing rm. 2317) high-resolution tabletop scanner; most time-consuming and hardest to learn
Autodesk 123D Catch free app for iOS and Android photo-based scanning which can produce comparable results to some of the above
