This thesis puts forward a design for an affordable 3D scanner that can easily capture accurate 3D models of the human hand. Such 3D scans are a requirement for designing and manufacturing personalised products, which open up a new world of design possibilities by tailoring products specifically to a single person. An example of such a product...

3D Scanning and 3D Printing are both emerging technologies and receive a lot of attention by media and conferences. For a lot of causes, injection molding or other ‘traditional’ forms of production are far superior over 3D Printing. However, for some applications, it can be revolutionary. The medical branch needs and develops a lot of very...
