And even with the right software (and of course hardware), it can still be quite tedious to learn the usage of such software. For this reason, I started working on the OpenScan Cloud over a year ago. I had quite a few setbacks but over the last few weeks I had some amazing progress, that I want to share. Raw (!!

But with change comes opportunity and here is the first of many new upcoming 3D scans: After getting to know this wonderful little new human, my focus on many things shifted. Nevertheless OpenScan will be a major part of my future and there is still so much more to do and to explore. A major benefit of being a father is that tim
