Turn your iPhone into a facial scanner: Part Two

A couple of months ago, we reported on an app that turns an iPhone into a low-cost facial scanner. Now we’ve found another one that actually predates it.

Grant Schindler‘s Trimensional app scans a user’s face, or other objects of similar size, and exports the geometry in OBJ or STL format, ready for 3D printing.

Unlike Digiteyezer’s iFace3D, Trimensional uses iPhone’s screen as a light source during scanning, which restricts the process to a darkened room, and means only the front of an object is captured.

Fun, though – and at just $0.99, it’s even cheaper than Digiteyezer’s solution.
