Steps for Access and Use

Step #1: Permits and Fee Ensure you have: [-] A CoE permit (blue, red OR green is sufficient) and have paid your materials fee for this semester if you’re a student. Our student staff are required to swipe your ID every time to verify. or [-] A valid M-Pass. You must show our staff your physical M-Pass and wiscard. Note: College of Engineering faculty and staff are not required to pay the materials fee, however, they must have a CoE permit. 

Step #2: Talk to student staff to determine which scanner is needed for your application Find a Makerspace student staff member at the check-out window (ring the bell if needed). Stucture Sensor (iPad-mounted): Can be used freely by users and most of our staff can provide some technical assistance. Can be checked-out with case. Einscan SP: Can be used freely by users and most of our staff can provide some technical assistance. An accessory kit can be checked-out, the scanner itself is usually on a bench in the Makerspace and plugged into a CAE computer with software installed. Creaform HandySCAN: A pro-level and expensive hand-held that requires additional assistance. Our student staff will check with the shop manager to ensure the Creaform scanner is needed for your application.

Step #3: Only you should use the scanner The scanner is for your use only; do not check something out for someone else. Creaform HandySCAN only: Since a significant amount of training is required for scanning technique and post-processing, our student staff will operate the Creaform scanner for you using the Kohler Visualization Suite downstairs.

Step #4: Return the scanner when you’re done (by end of day) All equipment must be returned by the end of the business day. Please clean/return it the way you found it.

We have a dedicated room for 3D scanning:

Software

Stucture Sensor (iPad-mounted): All the scanning software is built into the iPad you check-out with the scanner. You will email an .stl file to yourself through the app, which can be opened + edited using Mesh Mixer (free, go here to download) or other mesh editing software. Mesh Mixer is installed on all of the CAE computers in the Makerspace.

Einscan SP: The scanning software is installed on the CAE computer next to the scanner (ask our staff to help if needed). Or you can install it yourself here and use your own laptop. You email an .stl file to yourself, which can be edited using Mesh Mixer (free, go here to download) or other mesh editing software. Mesh Mixer is installed on all of the CAE computers in the Makerspace.

Creaform HandySCAN: The scanning and mesh editing software is called VX Elements, which is only available on Makerspace computers. See our staff for more info. You can also use your own software such as DesignX, etc. Talk to our staff for more info.
