So trying to look up more about lidar and specifically what's built into the iPhone I came across this blurb.

 

“Unfortunately, the mesh output by the system right now isn’t accurate enough to send to a 3D printer,” de With wrote on the Halide website. “But it’s a great starting point for a 3D model, since all the proportions will be very accurate.”

 

Now that's from someone working with the raw output so I think we either need to find an app which will help fill in those gaps, or will have to do stuff manually. It looks like though 3d scanner app has a bunch of functionality post scan so may be able to do it in there.

Sorry forgot to include an update.

 

I had a hell of a time trying to use the iPhone. I couldn't even produce a mediocre scan of random household objects let alone the car. I wasn't even close to what jmack got.

So, sounds like we would be better off getting a car professionally scanned. I'm still down to chip in - anyone else?

 

What does a service like that go for?

I saw a bunch of models when I looked... $100 a piece or so...

 

awfulwaffle built his original model based on one of those. He discovered they aren't complete and are low-rez. The nuances of things like the undertray lip and other stuff is non-existent. Adding all the custom pieces was hard because we/he was guessing. The computer array means we can step from a 2d slice to a 3d half body, assuming we can find a body that has no holes and enough geometry to get valid data.

 

Perhaps we can 3d print the models to generate cash? Of course 10 years, these would sold easily. Today? yes/no?

 

My original contact for scanning has moved on.

I took a look at the free model I could get my hands on, but none of the paid ones. I doubt they have much underside/engine bay resolution, but if we can get our hands on a proper solid model that'd be easy enough to add. Still, worth revisiting what's out there.

 

I have space and a pre-facelift wagon, friend has a facelift sedan and Nonamedude has a facelift OBXT. Time is tricky, back in school September to continue my perpetual masters degree. Maybe Nonamedude and I could coordinate scanning if we choose to go that route...

I had actually been hoping to do just that with the iPhone scan as most the apps implied it was possible. Haven't found a hot wheels of our wagons. Haven't looked super hard either
