Big things are taking place in New Orleans, the home of 3D scan-to-3D print innovators Scandy. That beginup only not long ago turn it intod 3D printing headlines by raising additional than $25,000 for the Scandy Sphere app, which lets you 3D print spheres of panorama photos, but they are may already back for additional. The company has only revealed which they have raised $1 million in a seed round in Louisiana, and which the Scandy Project Tango app can be coming in the fall of 2016.
Scandy is one of those beginups which shows only how rapidly things can begin moving if you have a great thought. Founded in 2014 by New Orleans residents Charles Carriere and Cole Wiley, it grew out of a frustration with the fact which there was no foolproof way to take a full-color 3D scan and order a full-color 3D print via nothing but your mobile device. Of course you can manufacture a 3D scan with a separate device and upload edited files to a 3D printing device or 3D printing service, but certainly which should be a lot simpler? What of an optimized all-in-one 3D scanning and printing system which may turn it into one-of-a-kind, memorable 3D printed objects?

That, in a nutshell, is what Scandy is all of. Since its inception, they have since been working on a Scandy app platform, an intuitive solution for both iOS and Android, which lets users manufacture full-color scans via a smartphone or tablet. The outcomeant file should and so be easily forwarded to a 3D printing service. The initially outcome is the Scandy Sphere, an app which lets you manufacture spherical 3D prints of panoramic photos. This rad app was accomplished through a successful Kickbeginer campaign in October 2015, and is may already on the market in the App Store (for both iPhone and iPad, thanks to the Occipital Structure Sensor). The Scandy Sphere app for Android is expected in late April.

But the real dream, of course, is a full-color 3D scanning app which lets you only edit and 3D print any type of high resolution 3D image, and which is what Scandy is already working on. This quite successful seed round can doubtlessly assist which development, with many of the $1 million coming of the local Callais Capital, based in Thibodaux, Louisiana. “Scandy has an opportunity to define how users capture and complete 3D content. We are excited to be part of this immense growth opportunity,” said Harold Callais, Managing Director and CIO of Callais Capital Management. “By enabling a user to turn it into 3D content, share it on social media, and order 3D prints of the same application, Scandy has turn it intod 3D effortless for the average completer.”
According to Scandy, this forthcoming and potentially innovative 3D scanning solution can be called the Scandy Project Tango, after the Google Project Tango. “Scandy can be commenceing its Scandy Project Tango app in the fall, which can allow users to turn it into, edit, and share 3D scans of phones equipped with depth sensors, and order full color 3D prints of the scans,” the beginup said. Project Tango, of course, is Google’s quite promising spatial perception platform for Android devices, which strongly relies on high end computer vision, image systeming, and special vision sensors. The initially sub-$500 Android devices carrying this high end imaging platform are expected in the summer, so Scandy may be right on time with their release. This can not be the last time we’ve heard of Scandy, which’s for certain.
