3D Scanner Project

Students at Halifax West High School have received grants from the Nova Scotia Teacher’s Union, Brilliant Labs and the Nova Scotia Technology Education Association (NSTEA) to design and build a Life-size 3D Scanner. The innovative project will employ the raspberry pi to capture high-resolution images and create 3D files which can later be printed using a 3D printer. A similar project can be seen at http://www.pi3dscan.com/.

Students participating in the project include members of the school’s Raspberry Pi Programming Club as well as students from the following classes; Electrotechnologies 11, Applied Networking 11, Exploring Technology 10 and Design Technology 11.

This is an unparalleled experiential learning opportunity where students are working collaboratively to design, construct, program and network the raspberry pi to engineer a high-tech 3D Scanner. Please visit often to see pictures of our progress.
