Kinect Fusion allows you to paint in 3D using a Kinect device as a wand, aggregating a point cloud representing a 3D volume (and allowing you to export a mesh of the capture surface). Kinect Fusion started as a UK-based research project between Microsoft Research Cambridge and Imperial College London. It was introduced into the Kinect for Windows® SDK in the 1.7 release, and has the potential to enable low-cost, high-quality reality capture for anyone with a Kinect device. This class looks at a prototype integration of Kinect Fusion inside AutoCAD software, investigating the quality of the results and the potential for further development.
