The main goal of this project is the development of a service based web platform, where customers can easily create 3D models from existing objects and directly send an order for 3D printing. SAMGO could be described as an online copy shop where users can scan and print 3D copies of almost every object. To generate a 3D model of the object, different sensor systems will be supported for acquiring the necessary data. Uploaded data are automatically processed and converted into 3D models while the web platform offers several tools for optimizing these models for 3D printing.
