With Skanect, capturing a full color 3D model of an object, a person or a room has never been so easy and affordable. Skanect transforms your Microsoft Kinect or Asus Xtion camera into an ultra-low cost 3D scanner able to create 3D meshes out of real scenes in a few minutes.

Skanect was developed by ManCTL, a company founded in late 2011 by Nicolas Tisserand and Nicolas Burrus. The company was acquired by Occipital in 2013.
