http://techcrunch.com – While Windows 3D scanning software has until now outperformed any Apple counterpart, Occipital Inc. plans to remedy that today with the launch of Skanect for OS X. Originally developed by France-based startup ManCTL, Skanect allows users to create 3D scans on Apple computers using low-cost sensors like Microsoft’s Kinect or ASUS Xtion. ManCTL was acquired by Occipital in June 2013. Skanect boasts a cheap and easy alternative to creating quick, color 3D scans without a high-end graphics card. It uses the application and a camera sensor to create a 3D image, ready to share or print. Occipi (IT news)
