They are devices able to do any 3D model through an additive manufacturing process, which means that starting from an object drawn via software is possible to replicate it in the real world with the aid of suitable materials. The procedure usually involves the placement of a layer on top of another, proceeding per cross-sections.


The Open Technologies 3D scanners are systems provided of an optical head with up to 4 cameras that are able to acquire the three-dimensional shape of an object in a few seconds and with precision. The final result of the three-dimensional scanning is obtained through a single integrated processing environment that manages STL meshes and point clouds. 3D digitizing process means a set of operations that, starting from a physical object, allow to obtain a digital description of the same object. The first 3D scanning technique developed is based on direct contact with the object: an analog probe of known diameter moves onto the surface of the workpiece, and acquires the points of the same surfaces on the basis of the suffered deflections. With this process, the scanning times are very long and the contact with the object may deform the sample compromising the goodness of fit (for example in silicone objects). Recently, optical scanning methods have emerged. The principle of their behaviour consists in projecting on the object a blade or a point of light and, according to the deformation undergone by the light on the target surface, a three-dimensional model is reconstructed. This particular measurement principle has significant advantages over the probe method.

· non-invasiveness: the instrument operates without the need for contact with the surface, so you can measure soft or delicate objects;   

· high acquisition parallelization: with a single measurement, hundreds of thousands points are obtained simultaneously ;

· high reconfigurability: through a quick calibration procedure is possible to prepare the instrument in the most appropriate configuration to operate with a particular surface;

·         low cost of maintenance: no special care is required for the use of the machine, there's an easy way to recalibrate the instrument in a few moments through the use of a master;

·      very wide applicability: the application fields are very diversified and range from industry, art up to the medical science.




Raspberry Pi 2 is one of those devices, now that really is "on everybody's lips." As the well-known Arduino, Raspberry Pi is a prototyping platform, albeit differs per processor and computing power.
Raspberry Pi 2 can be considered as a computer in every respect, although its dimensions are smaller than the palm of a hand, with its software and its user interface. It is a single board computer or a computer implemented on a single electronic card that can be used for the most varied purposes. With a Raspberry Pi 2 you can do everything. The most obvious applications are the following, but there is obviously huge space for the imagination: - various kinds servers (web, FTP, NAS, ...)
- Media center
- Regular computer (able to run properly modified Linux distributions; i.e. Debian, Fedora, Arch Linux, Gentoo, FreeBSD, ...)
- Home automation (can be used as a controller for a home automation system. An example is the management of security systems, surveillance and lighting system)
- WiFi hotspot captive portal
- A variety of applications in the electronics industry through the use of connections GPIO (General Purpose Input / Output, the "comb" GPIO, instantly recognizable on the card, allows you to control the Raspberry other external electronic circuits)



Arduino is a low-cost programmable hardware platform, with which you can create circuits "almost" of all kinds for many applications, especially in the field of robotics and automation. It is based on a microcontroller ATMEL, the ATMega168 / 328: for example the Arduino Uno features a ATMega328. Born in Ivrea, in 2005, the brainchild of a college professor, an electronics engineer, Massimo Banzi, who decided to create a platform for their students, so as to facilitate them in interaction design studio. It was a complete success, to the point of pushing the engineer to make this platform, Open Source (actually Open Hardware) that you can find on the official website www.arduino.cc, circuits, components and even the instructions for it on their own. What should interest actually are circuit diagrams: being Open, and then be viewed by all, with the peripheral interface can be continuously improved by the community and thanks to them have been developed an incredible number of software libraries that make it really easy for any type. It was a group of students of the Faculty of Engineering to write to the library, the IDE (portable library on any operating system) and the first API; Thanks to these pre-engineers, Arduino program still so fluid, simple and very intuitive. On the Internet, even, you can find pre-written libraries according to our need. For example if we want to make some application we need any particular function or some support for sensors we use, precisely, for surfing the Internet. Need to add a very important detail, every program that you write about Arduino will naturally start to loop () until power is removed from the device. When you connect to a power source (such as the USB PC or even an ordinary 9V battery) it turns on and starts the program loaded by the IDE to infinite loop. This continues until you kill him unless we remove the battery or detach the cable. This framework is designed for artists, designers, hobbiesti and anyone interested in creating interactive objects. The Arduino board is able to interact with the environment in which is located by receiving information from a variety of sensors. But not only speaks of sensors, Arduino can control lights, LEDs, motors, and other actuators. The programming language is based on Wiring (an open-source programming environment designed for easy application to simplify programming in C and C ++) and interface Processing. Projects based on Arduino can be independent or can be interfaced with other software such as Processing, MaxMSP, Flash and others. The design (EAGLE) and schematic (CAD), are free, downloadable and can be modified to piacimento.Il Arduino Team is composed of Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, Gianluca Martino and David Mellis.

3D modeling indicates a process to define any three-dimensional shape in a virtual space generated on computers; these objects, called 3D models are created using special software programs, called 3D modelers, or more generally 3D software
